On 23 May Wuhan University Institute for Human Rights Studies, China, hosted the webinar on the Rights Protection of Vulnerable Groups in the Pandemic, as a part of the Global Epidemic Prevention & Control and Human Rights Protection Conference Series. Department of Social Work, Child Welfare and Social Policy of Oslo Metropolitan University and Wuhan East-lake Institute for Social Advancement (our partner institute for the project “Disability Resilience”) co-organized this event.
