On 28 September, FRA’s Director will give a keynote speech on the impact of COVID-19 on the realisation of human rights now and in the long run. He will speak during a meeting of the Human Rights Delegation of Finland, a body of the Finnish NHRI.
The meeting will feed the NHRI’s upcoming Recommendations to political decision makers in Finland on how to improve responses to the pandemic from a human rights perspective. The Recommendation will draw on the Human Rights Centre’s monitoring and research, delegation members' expertise and FRA’s recent publications. This includes FRA’s report on NHRIs, Strong and effective national human rights institutions – challenges, promising practices and opportunities.
