    RightsUp - The Impact of Covid-19 on Workers' Rights in the UK (with Michael Ford)

    The spread of Covid-19 has affected many areas of our lives with major implications for our rights and freedoms. The instigation of a UK-wide lockdown has had an especially pronounced effect on our rights, and the burden of this disruption will fall most heavily on those whose livelihoods, health, and security were already fragile. Furloughed employees, those who are self-employed, and those who must now seek social security benefits face an unprecedented level of uncertainty. Today we discuss the impact of coronavirus on worker's rights in the UK.

    RightsUp - The Need for Empathy: Understanding India's COVID-19 Lockdown (with Kalpana Kannabiran)

    The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in many ways. States around the world have imposed restrictions of varying levels of stringency to control the spread of the virus. The Central Government in India introduced a nationwide 21-day lockdown on 24th of March 2020. The lockdown saw an almost complete restriction on the movement of people and the closure of all establishments except those providing essential services. India’s lockdown has been described as the world’s biggest coronavirus lockdown and the harshest coronavirus containment measure in the world. The lockdown was declared with a four-hour notice period. It has been extensively reported that the impact of the lockdown has fallen most heavily on those most vulnerable. In this episode, we speak to Professor Kalpana Kannabiran, a professor of sociology and the Director of the Council for Social Development Hyderabad, about the Indian government's response to the pandemic and the impact on rights.

    RightsUp - Re-writing Chile's Constitution for Human Rights (with Nicolás Espejo Yaksic)

    At the end of 2019, parts of Chile descended into violent unrest. Demonstrations were countrywide and challenged broad social issues, such as the increased cost of living, privatisation and growing inequality. Arising out of the protest is a proposal of constitutional change. In light of the recent unrest, politicians agreed to call a national referendum on the creation of a new Constitution. In this episode, we discuss the protests, the possibility of constitutional change, and the impact on children's rights in Chile.
