COVID-19 & Queer Asylum



COVID-19 & Queer Asylum is a virtual symposium featuring NGO representatives and lawyers working on queer asylum, LGBTQI+ activists and LGBTQI+ persons seeking asylum and refugees from Germany. This symposium is intended to provide a platform for discussing the manner in which such pandemic and its political responses affects LGBTQI+ persons in terms of  isolation and trauma, access to health services, and EU-policy. These panels are followed by a counseling forum led by lawyers and judges.

The Barnard Digital Humanities Center is a cosponsor of this event.
