Blog post by Elizabeth Stubbins-Bates discusses human rights in clinical settings during the Covid-19 outbreak

Elizabeth Stubbins-Bates has contributed to a Covid-19 symposium on the Opinio Juris blog.  'How Can Human Rights Law Inform the Protection of Health Care Personnel and Vulnerable Patients in the COVID-19 Pandemic?' analyses the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) on states’ positive operational obligations to protect life under Article 2 of the ECHR, and offers concrete arguments for the protection of health care personnel and vulnerable patients through this human rights lens.

Opinio Juris was the world’s first blog dedicated to informed discussion of international law by and among academics, practitioners and legal experts.
