Virtual Eat&Meet on Fundamental Rights and COVID-19 with Dr. Henri Nickels

May 13 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We are excited to announce a Virtual Eat&Meet with Dr. Henri Nickels. Together with current and former Fulbrighters, we will host a Google Hangout session on Fundamental Rights and COVID-19! The outbreak of COVID-19 affects people’s daily life in the 27 EU Member States. As the number of infected people in the EU territory began to mount rapidly in February and March, governments put in place a raft of measures – often introduced in a period of only a few days – in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.

This presentation will outline some of the measures EU Member States have put in place to protect public health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Henri Nickels’ areas of expertise with respect to the FRA’s work include equality and non-discrimination; racism, xenophobia,…
