JUSTICE IN A PANDEMIC
As the world struggles to get a grip on the coronavirus pandemic and make sense of the new social, economic and political reality that we are suddenly in, the justice workforce finds itself on the frontline.
People-centered justice approaches are needed to respond to the urgent challenges that the pandemic poses. They will help societies manage the institutional, social and economic fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak and can help build more just societies for the future.
