It is our honor to invite you to the conference titled „Emergency Powers in the Light of the COVID-19 pandemic”, which will take place on 25 October at the University of Miskolc Faculty of Law.

Please, indicate your intention to participate by filling in the registration form below no later then 19th October 2022. 

The global crisis triggered by COVID-19 shed light on the exceptional situations in which governments may need to be empowered to take actions that they would not normally be permitted, in order to maintain or restore the integrity of the state and public safety and protect their citizens. Emergency powers are often regarded as a neglected field of constitutional law since most European countries rarely have to face crises or threats that cannot be managed under normal operating conditions.

The basic goal of the conference twofold: On the one hand, the lecturers offer an in-depth analysis and comparison of the systems of emergency powers of nine Central and Eastern European countries, paying special attention to the states of exception declared in the previous decades; on the other hand, the presentations are devoted to discussing the constitutional law aspects of the responses for COVID-19 crisis, highlighting the relevant legal and political debates, dilemmas and viewpoints surrounding the pandemic.
