ISCI is a cross-disciplinary research centre working to further our understanding of state crime: organisational deviance violating human rights

Covid-19 and State Crime

The International State Crime Initiative (ISCI) in cooperation with students from the Global Health Program at Queen Mary University of London has launched the Covid-19 and State Crime Project. This project a) analyses  the multiple ways in which Covid-19 emergency measures have been exploited to formalise and normalise human rights violations, b) exposes pre-existing state crime, and c) interrogates criminal government negligence with respect to the pandemic and the structural neglect of health and care services.
