While the world is focusing on the global health effects of the pandemic, rule of law and human rights violations are taking place, daily, unaccounted for:

  • Failure to access healthcare of all people in India, Libya and South Africa;
  • Enacting effective bans on abortion in some states in the USA;
  • Failure to adequately tackle skyrocketing domestic violence around the globe during lockdown;
  • Rights of refugees, stateless persons and destitute migrants being trampled on worldwide;
  • LGBT minorities refused access to shelters;
  • The abuse of emergency measures to restrict freedom of speech and erode the rule of law in Hungary;
  • Attacks on the independence of the judiciary in Poland;
  • Curtailing of due process and fair trial rights
  • … and more.

The ICJ is on the front lines to document, advocate and provide efficient legal tools for civil society and the legal community to stop these abuses.
