On Tuesday 23 March OMDDAC held a joint webinar with the University of Birmingham’s COVID Review Observatory (CVRO) to discuss their initial findings and reflections from the first year of the pandemic.
The webinar considered the justifications put forward for COVID-19 responses, and assessed the respective roles that data and human rights have (or have not) come to perform in the context of the pandemic.
