L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Concluding Workshop on Human Rights Principles for Public Health Emergency Prevention, Preparedness, Response & Recovery


Event Summary
Since 2021, the organizers and invitees to this Concluding Workshop have worked together to address normative gaps between international human rights law and global health law as these fields relate to public health emergency prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. 
With funding and in-kind support generously offered by the Brocher Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, the Government of Canada, and the UK Research and Innovation's Economic and Social Research Council, this Workshop will culminate in the finalization of Human Rights Principles for Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response (‘Principles’).
Event Background
The multi-year initiative leading to this Workshop is co-led by two core partners: the Global Health Law Consortium (GHLC), a research network of the world’s leading scholars in global health law, and the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), an award-winning NGO defending human rights worldwide. At an interdisciplinary convening of experts in Italy in November 2021, the ICJ and GHLC convened experts to deliberate on a preliminary draft of the Principles. Experts agreed to revise this draft on the basis of virtual regional dialogues with human rights defenders at the frontlines of local COVID-19 responses. 
The Concluding Workshop at Fondation Brocher will bring together these experts to take stock of key findings from regional consultations, and to finalize the Principles, as well as accompanying legal commentary.
Expected Outcomes 
Emerging directly from this Workshop, the final draft of the Principles will represent a consensus-based elaboration of international legal and human rights standards guiding the prevention of, preparation for, and response to public health emergencies.
