The COVID-19 Civic Freedom Tracker is a collaborative effort by the ICNL, ECNL, and other global network of partners, with generous research support from the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, Fionnuala D. Ní Aoláin.
COVID-19 weakens a country’s immunity to Governmental Over-reach. This tracker is a tool that monitors government responses to the pandemic and prevent over-reach from infecting civic freedoms and human rights. It also monitors government responses to the pandemic that affect civic freedoms and human rights, focusing on emergency laws.
To date, the tracker has information on 117 responses in 88 Countries. The tracker is frequently updated with new information added. This is an ongoing effort, and we welcome you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to share additional resources.
