A Roadmap to Recovery: Proposing a Forward-Thinking Commitment for Northern Ireland post Covid-19: Policy Paper
A more holistic approach to post-Covid recovery can help future-proof the economy and ensure that recovery champions a better society says Dr Ciaran O'Kelly, Dr Ciara Hackett, Dr Clare Patton and Samantha Hopkins from Queen's School of Law.
In the international business and human rights legal world, policy documents, communications and reports from the OECD, ILO and the UN have all focused on the socio-economic recovery from Covid-19. They have all recognised the impact of the global pandemic, cautioned against diluting human rights and argued that Covid-19 has created a catalyst for change.
To date, the response to the crisis by the Northern Ireland government is to react to unfolding economic crises with initiatives to stimulate the economy and protect business.
Although we recognise that this is crucial, a more holistic approach to recovery can help future-proof the economy and ensure that recovery champions a better society. As such, in this Policy Paper, we have proposed a draft roadmap that can help achieve this.
