The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed humanity to a very different vision of human’s future. Vast array of humans’ life has been altered with legal implications following the pandemic like never before. Under the pretext of keeping public health, numerous rights, such as freedom of movement and freedom of assembly, have been either curtailed or limited in very unequal ways without clear indication when or how they will be restored. This pandemic has been experienced in a very different way for every group in society. As inequality became wider, this pandemic has also been disrupting deeply both social and economic fabrics, and eroding the government’s legitimacy and yet capacity to take necessary, proportional, and appropriate actions in tackling the issue effectively. At the same time, the acceleration of digitalization has transformed the mode of production radically bringing consequence where a lot of jobs lost during the pandemic to never return again. The mode of information was altered deeply with the inception of more digitalized forms and consciousness of communication, in public side, (it is) marked by the rise of counter-narrative in form of ‘conspiracy theories’ and in the government side with the emergence of a new model of state’s surveillance. Therefore, the understanding of the law and human rights should be reimagined in a very different vision.

This forum strives to highlight the divergent problems and issues relating to the various facets of law and human rights related to the impact caused by the pandemic. Important to note that the pandemic also has a very different magnitude on Global North and Global South. A wide range of approaches and discussions should be scrutinized in a very careful way. As the pandemic convulses government confidence and public resilience greatly, trial and error should not be taken for granted, bold and inclusive approaches are much more urgent than ever before.

 Therefore in the wake of such looming crises, the Research and Development Agency on Law and Human Rights - a think-tank on law and human rights policymaking process for the Ministry of Law and Human Rights Republic of Indonesia, calls up and invites scholars, practitioners, and policymakers at all stages and across disciplinary boundaries to contribute to the International Forum on Law and Human Rights in October 2020. Innovative and experimental ideas are strongly encouraged to be submitted. Given the current situation which limits the usual on person gathering, the meeting would be held entirely virtual.
