The Health Crisis
Digital Green passport: plain sailing or rocky road?
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Governments are desperately seeking ways out of some of the physical distancing and mobility restrictions imposed to control the spread of Covid-19. The idea of granting special privileges to those who have been vaccinated or immunised is thus gaining momentum, across the world. There is currently no international consensus on how or why such certificates should be used, however. The European Journal of Risk Regulation (EJRR) has convened a symposium on Covid certificates to mobilise the research community that has been working on the issue from a variety of regional and disciplinary perspectives, to collect actionable evidence that might advance the state of knowledge and inform policymaking. This session will be co-organised with the EJRR and will feature a discussion of the key issues, ahead of the launch of EU Digital Green Certificates in mid-June.
