Human Mobility and Human Rights in the COVID-19 Pandemic
Revisiting the 14 Principles of Protection for Migrants, Refugees, and Other Displaced Persons

October 2021

Building upon the 14 Principles – which set out how international law should protect migrants, refugees, and other displaced persons during the COVID-19 pandemic and have been endorsed by more than 1,000 scholars worldwide – a group of international law scholars have collaborated to create a series of short essays looking at a set of pressing legal and policy issues relevant to this and future pandemics and the rights of migrants under international law.
