International Perspectives on Civil Liberties and COVID-19
March 17, 2022
1 p.m. EDT (6 p.m. Paris)

Should public health take precedence over individual choice? COVID-19 has forced governments everywhere to adopt policies and measures that would have been inconceivable to many people a few years ago.

Who has power over your body and when should individuals accept restrictions on some of their freedoms to protect the safety and well-being of their community?

In this exclusive News Decoder webinar, students from School Year Abroad will share on-the-ground reporting they have conducted in three European democracies – France, Italy and Spain – that in different ways have struggled to balance public health concerns with civil liberties.


Please note that this webinar is not hosted by SYA and you will be directed to News Decoder's registration page. We are fortunate to be able to share this opportunity with our SYA community. While you will be off-camera, this webinar is intended to be interactive and you will be able to ask questions and make comments in writing. Attending this webinar are students and faculty of other News Decoder partner schools.
