Economic Crisis and Rebuilding: Investing in the Rule of Law

Clara Poglia, Monisha Cheong, Khushboo Shahdadpuri, Neuza Melao Dias, and Georgio Fasfalis

Economic crisis can have detrimental impacts on human rights protections and social solidarity. The pandemic has demonstrated that an economic crisis can hit unexpectedly, indistinctly, and unequally. We must invest in the rule of law for economic recovery efforts to successfully build back better for the long-term and to be more resilient to future economic shocks. This session will look at how rule of law-affirming approaches are advancing sustainable economic prosperity, social inclusion, access to justice, and protection of human rights even during economic uncertainty and rebuilding.
