CEC video features responses to human rights in the times of COVID-19

Churches and believers across Europe have experienced numerous hardships, posing challenges to the state of human rights in the times of COVID-19. To explore these issues, the Conference of European Churches (CEC) releases a new video, featuring impressions from participants of its 7th virtual Summer School on Human Rights.

The Summer School held online from 7 to 10 July 2020 in cooperation with the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), brought together church leaders, academics, experts from the international organisations and the European institutions from across the region.

The new video features comments from the Summer School participants, representing diverse backgrounds. They address questions related to democracy, human rights and rule of law obligations during COVID-19, sharing case studies related to challenges for CEC Member Churches, as well as freedom of religion or belief. The video also features impressions on the rights of minorities and experience of young people.

Among the interviewees are Tatjana Peric, Dr Ibrahim Salama, Fr. Dr Sorin Selaru, Angelita Tomaselli, Assoc. Prof. Dr Vassiliki Stathokosta, Rev. Dr Göran Gunner, Bishop Hovakim Manukyan, Imam Sayed Razawi, Leon Saltiel, Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain, Dr Ganoune Diop, Natia Tsintsadze, Hajar Al-Kaddo, Rev. Dr Daniel Topalski, Natia Tsintsadze, Fr. Dr Sorin Selaru and Bishop Petra Bosse-Huber.
