In the COVID-19 Chronicles, Frank Barat interviews analysts, doctors, thinkers, activists and politicians on the coronavirus crisis and its impact on global politics.
While the world is facing the worst pandemic in modern history, lawyers, on behalf of corporations and private investors, are preparing to sue governments for COVID-19 response measures.
Pia Eberhardt and Cecilia Olivet are the authors of a recent report “Cashing in on the pandemic.” They talk to Frank Barat about what is at stake, and what we can do to stop what is in fact a parallel legal system for the super rich.
Cecilia Olivet is a researcher with the Transnational Institute (TNI), where she coordinates the Trade and Investment Program. You can follow her on Twitter @CeOlivet.
