POLÍTICA DE RESPOSTA À COVID-19 E DIREITOS HUMANOS NA NIGÉRIA E NO QUÊNIA
Palavras-chave:Africa, International Relations
Este artigo analisa a interseção da resposta à Covid-19 com os direitos humanos na Nigéria e no Quênia, pois ambos os países ilustram dois Estados endêmicos da Covid-19 e que responderam rapidamente à pandemia da Covid-19. No entanto, na Nigéria e no Quênia, a resposta à Covid-19 deve ser entendida em relação aos seus respectivos quadros legais e políticos e aos mecanismos de aplicação das políticas. O artigo observa que casos de brutalidade policial, extorsão e agressão a civis durante a pandemia de Covid-19 levantam a questão da insegurança e de toda a questão dos direitos humanos. O artigo demonstra que as medidas de emergência dos governos tiveram sérias implicações para os direitos fundamentais na Nigéria e no Quênia, particularmente para os que violaram as medidas, às pessoas pobres e vulneráveis e às mulheres e meninas.
