Human Rights Conversations
Governments and organizations worldwide have been considering or are already implementing Covid-19 certificates to progressively manage the current pandemic. Commonly referred to as ‘vaccine passports’ or ‘digital green certificates’, they allow vaccinated people, those who have tested negative to SARS-CoV-2 or have acquired immunity to COVID-19, to travel and access public and private spaces. Yet, they can have significant implications for data privacy and human rights.
In this Human Rights Conversation, panellists will discuss the implications of ‘vaccine passports’ or ‘digital green certificates’ for data privacy and human rights.
Human Rights Conversations are a series of events, hosted by the Geneva Human Rights Platform, aimed at discussing contemporary issues and challenges related to the promotion and protection of human rights in Geneva and beyond.
In the context of the 2021 Human Rights Week and its academic colloquium, graduate and postgraduate researchers who obtained their PhD within the past ten years are invited to submit proposals that explore the different facets of discriminations and inequalities and discuss their human rights impact.
