Video: Pathogens, Pandemics and Public Liberty

This webinar featuring Pearl Eliadis took place on April 9, 2020 as part of our Policy Challenges During a Pandemic series

Our civil liberties were designed to protect us against state incursions, especially in times of crisis. But the nature of a pandemic necessitates at least some trade-off between liberty and safety. In this webinar, Pearl Eliadis addresses the issue of public liberty during this time of pandemic.
