OSCE Human Rights and Pandemic Report

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) has released a report which represents the culmination of the efforts of its Office for Democratic Institution and Human Rights (ODIHR) to respond to human rights challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the OSCE.

The report aims to help OSCE participating States learn lessons from the Covid-19 pandemic in order to strengthen their institutions ahead of future challenges. It begins with an overview of obligations when declaring a state of emergency and any attendant restrictions on fundamental freedoms and human rights, and goes on to describe the impact of the emergency measures implemented around the OSCE region on democratic institutions and human rights.

Many thanks to Kishan Manocha, Senior Advisor on Freedom of Religion or Belief at ODIHR, for sharing this with us.
