Global monitor of COVID-19's impact on democracy and human rights

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a direct impact on our economy, employment and health system. But what impact has COVID-19 had on democracy and human rights globally? Can some patterns be identified? This presentation gives a glimpse into how democracy can be hampered as a result of the ongoing pandemic.

Welcome to a lecture with Elisenda Ballesté Buxó from International IDEA. She is the coordinator of the Global Monitor of COVID-19´s impact on Democracy and Human Rights, a project co-funded by the European Union and implemented by International IDEA, a tool to monitor the impact the pandemic might have on democracy and human rights at a global, regional and national level. Elisenda will also briefly explain the Global State of Democracy Indices, the base of the monitor, and will demonstrate how the tool works in practice.
