Human Rights before and after COVID-19: Getting Human Rights Education out of Quarantine 

This essay explores the way in which the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened human rights conditions across the globe, particularly around the rise of authoritarianism, erosion of democracy, increase in hate crimes and racism, and deepening of economic inequality. We then advocate for the possibilities and significance of human rights education as a core component of every student’s learning experience and provide suggestions and specific resources for teaching human rights during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
