On Monday, November 9th, CESR will be co-hosting a webinar with the Institute for Economic Justice (IEJ) and SECTION27 that asks: what role for human rights in defining a new economics?
As the response to the COVID-19 pandemic is showing, 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 webinar to hear this much need debate.
