III Euro-American Conference for the Development of Human Rights:
Human Rights Dimensions of COVID-19 Response

International human rights standards guarantee everyone the right of access to health and well-being and, in this sense, instruct governments to adopt measures that prevent / prevent threats to public health. Likewise, they recognize that in contexts of serious threats to public health and the lives of citizens, restrictions are justified on some fundamental rights based on legality and circumscribed to what is strictly necessary, based on scientific evidence and not arbitrarily or discriminatoryly applied, of limited duration, always respecting the dignity of the human person.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the viral disease epidemic COVID-19, originally identified in December 2019 in China’s Wuhan province, had reached the level of a global pandemic. The alarming levels of contagion have also led WHO to call on governments to take urgent measures and to stem the spread of the virus.

The escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic has justified restrictions on certain fundamental rights, with the imposition of quarantine or isolation, limiting the free movement of people, goods and goods, among others.

The proposal of the 3rd edition of the Euro-American Conference for the Development of Human Rights – Dimensions of Human Rights in the Response to COVID-19 (ECHR2021), is to reflect the impact of fundamental and human rights in the effective response to the pandemic. Likewise, to analyze the losses generated by the imposition of excessively broad measures, which do not respect the requirements of human rights. Always keeping in mind the importance of developing these rights in the pursuit of a just and dignified social life.

The CEDH2021 proposes to work for the evolution of scientific knowledge, and therefore to facilitate researchers / researchers, academics, students and professionals, networking and space for the progression of the community.

The main objective of the event is to disseminate knowledge and encourage multilevel scientific production by facilitating the sharing of synergies between academia and civil society in shared dialogues.

In this third edition we look for proposals that substantiate theoretical studies, literature reviews or others with special emphasis on the nefarious and sudden global situation imposed on the world by the pandemic by COVID-19, especially the impact of restrictions on human and fundamental rights.
