WEBINAR 4: “The Rule of Law in the Pandemic”

Friday, 14 May 2021  |  09:00 – 10.30 BST / 10.00 – 11.30 CEST

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed extreme strain on legal systems, requiring action in response to fast-changing and complex situation of the pandemic emergency. This panel evaluates state action – and in particular, executive-decision making – in response to the pandemic against the standard of the rule of law, and considers whether this will lead to permanent shifts in legal systems worldwide.

The panel will consist of short interventions by each speaker, followed by a moderated Q&A session. Tweet your questions with #PowerandPandemic.
