This is the second volume of the book series Human Rights – Looking Towards the Future, edited by the Human Rights Centre of Central South University. The book is timely not only as it deals with the pandemic, the topic dominating the headlines in many countries, but also because it provides five succinct analyses – from China, Ireland, South Africa, Turkey and about Germany – directing attention to questions about Human Rights that are commonly underexposed.
