The first edition covers a wide range of subject matters, including gender-based violence and women’s health, LGBTQI+ rights, prisoners and detainees, refugee camps and asylum procedures. It highlights concerns of reported increases in domestic violence while many jurisdictions are in lockdown mode. In addition, the lack of basic protective measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in many prisons and detention centres sheds light on the inadequate structures of these environments for the stringent precautionary measures necessary during this pandemic.

Measures imposed to contain or prevent the spread of COVID-19 should not be used to disguise disproportionate treatment or disregard citizens’ fundamental liberties. In the midst of this unprecedented global crisis, the IBAHRI is committed to continued defence of the rule of law and exposing human rights violations wherever in the world they may occur.

The first edition of the IBAHRI Covid-19 Human Rights Monitor is available to view online here.

The International Bar Association (IBA), the global voice of the legal profession, is the foremost organisation for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies. Established in 1947, shortly after the creation of the United Nations , it was born out of the conviction that an organisation made up of the world’s bar associations could contribute to global stability and peace through the administration of justice. The International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI), an autonomous and financially independent entity, works to promote, protect and enforce human rights under a just rule of law, and to preserve the independence of the judiciary and the legal profession worldwide.
