Conference Summary Report “Confronting Racism and Addressing Human Rights in a Pandemic”
The COVID-19 pandemic is a human rights crisis in Canada and around the world. The segments of society most vulnerable to racism, hate, and discrimination as well as exclusion are also the ones most negatively impacted by the pandemic.

Invited speakers offered provocative perspectives to challenge participants to envision a truly inclusive, human rights-informed post‑pandemic recovery process. This report presents their conclusions and recommendations.
