Professor Jutta Brunnee

Faculty of Law Professor Jutta Brunnée is the Metcalf Chair in Environmental Law with teaching and research interests in the areas of Public International Law, International Environmental Law and International Legal Theory.

In an op-ed published in the Globe and Mail, Professor Brunnée writes about the U.N. Security Council's response to COVID-19.

"UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has rightly called the pandemic “the most challenging crisis we have faced since the Second World War,” and the General Assembly, in rare unanimity, adopted a resolution calling for “intensified international co-operation to contain, mitigate and defeat the pandemic.” But the Security Council has been silent, paralyzed by the veto-bearing permanent members."
