openDemocracy and our partners Source Material are tracking how this pandemic is damaging democracy across the world.

Each week we’ll send an email reporting on how governments are suspending civil rights, ramping up surveillance and rolling back hard-won freedoms.

From Kosovo to Kenya, Uganda to the UK, governments are using this crisis as an opportunity to take power away from citizens. We need to make sure that these measures are temporary and proportionate. And that starts with knowing what they are.
