— country: Global

A group of human rights experts, including CIC's Leah Zamore, co-drafted the below statement outlining 14 human rights principles for protecting migrants, refugees, and other displaced persons during and after COVID-19. The principles, which over a thousand legal scholars have signed since late April, were highlighted by the International Organization on Migration in a May 2020 analytical snapshot on the human rights implications of COVID-19 throughout the migration cycle, and cited in United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres’s Policy Brief: COVID-19 and People on the Move in June 2020.
