Infecting Rights
A Lecture by Kate Gilmore
The Medical Humanities, Arts, and Ethics Series

Admission is free. 

Kate Gilmore has served as the United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights and is a fellow with the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. Gilmore’s advocacy for the advancement and application of human rights norms and standards extends over three decades, and she has helped guide policy on a range of human rights issues for the United Nations, governments, and civil society organizations. 
The human tragedy resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic unveils our common humanity. While this shared crisis might have fostered the establishment of rights as a means of bolstering health globally, it has instead left human rights, never in the finest of health, gravely ill. In a stirring lecture, Gilmore will examine how this global public-health crisis—exacerbated by racism, misogyny, and aporophobia (hostility to the poor)—has further undermined human rights.
