Freedom of Assembly and Association/Protests

Forum to discuss particular developments and work related to the Freedom of Assembly and Association and Global Protests.

I wanted to share this piece I co-wrote on the new UN Committee guidance and its connection to the pandemic and recent fundamental rights developments: As Protests Surge Globally, the UN Human Rights Committee Provides Timely Guidance | ASIL
Would love to know your thoughts on the piece, the Committee guidance itself, and how governments can adhere to this guidance.
