Covid-19 – Toolkit for Civil Society Partners. Emergency Powers and Crisis Responses: Human Rights Risks

This COVID-19 civil society toolkit is designed to provide a guide for civil society organisations to anticipate emergency laws and policies; scrutinise, from a rights based perspective, the process by which these laws and policies are passed and their content; and identify and respond to emergency measures—particularly those that are having a disproportionate impact on marginalised and vulnerable groups.

The toolkit is set around the three specific areas of risk that arise in respect of the emergency measures taken in response to the pandemic:

    • Risks arising from the procedure by which emergency laws and policies are implemented;
    • Risks arising from the substance of the emergency laws and policies themselves;
    • Risks arising from the implementation of the laws, policies and practiceson specific vulnerable communities.
