Exposing our vulnerabilities

Last updated on September 17, 2020

CBA National Magazine writes about a timely and insightful project led by several professors at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law (my alma matter).

Vulnerable: The Law, Policy and Ethics of COVID-19, explores the public policy implications of the crisis response to COVID-19. The volume contains the submissions of 69 academics and experts drawn from a range of disciplines.

As noted in the CBA National’s article, “[t]he pervading theme running throughout is our collective vulnerability in responding to the pandemic, rooted in pre-existing social and economic inequities. The essays are organized around governance, accountability, civil liberties, equity, work, and global health.”
