COVID-19 Reports on Latin America and the Caribbean: No. 27 (En Español)
My grandmother used to say: whenever things grow too fast, it’s always wise to take a minute to reflect on the path taken and what’s coming ahead. The beginning of a new year seems the perfect time to do such an assessment.
Our project, Law Librarians Monitoring COVID-19 in Latin America and the Caribbean has produced so far 26 reports and we are aiming at 40-45 (if not more!) reports by March 2021 covering all parts of the region. We are reporting on specific situations to highlight the responses to such an unprecedented situation and how the different governments have reacted to the pandemic. Coming from all corners of the Americas, our project members bring their professional expertise as well as personal reflection to make these reports unique and insightful. Some of them are also translated into Spanish, Portuguese and French.
Please find below a list of all the reports published so far by their respective subregion as well as the idea behind our upcoming reports.
