The Institute for Economic Justice (IEJ), Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR) and SECTION27, invite you to join the webinar - Defining a new economics: What role for human rights?
As the response to the COVID-19 pandemic is showing us, economic policies have a profound impact on the realisation of rights. Yet the economics discipline continues to present itself as “value-neutral” and often fails to properly consider the implications of particular policies on people’s rights. Similarly, while human rights advocates have engaged deeply on the implementation of particular socio-economics rights, the role of rights in shaping the fundamental structure of our economies is often less considered. Register for this much needed debate.
