Share your story: Human rights impacts of Australia’s COVID-19

Australian Human Rights Commission

Application end date: 30/06/2024

The Australian Human Rights Commission is currently running a project focusing on the human rights impacts of Australia’s COVID-19 response measures.  They are keen to understand the different ways in which the pandemic affected Australians.

The overall aim of the project is to create a framework to embed human rights considerations in planning so we can improve responses to future emergencies and disasters in Australia.

They would like to hear from individuals, groups or organisations who have a story to tell about the way that pandemic responses affected them and their communities, whether about something that worked well, challenges they faced or ideas for doing things better.

 They are looking for story submissions of up to 1000 words where people can tell us about their personal experience during the pandemic. Stories can relate to any aspect of the country’s COVID-19 pandemic response such as lock downs, border closures, quarantine requirements, social distancing or school closures.

You can share your story on the Australian Human Rights Commission – COVID-19 Emergency Response ‘Your Story’ portal:
