In 2020, states are taking emergency measures to deal with the outbreak of the COVID-19. Civil liberties are typically prioritised in the constitutional norm. However, public health and public welfare tend to be prioritised in emergency measures to combat the COVID-19, and civil liberties tend to be limited. It is crucial to rethink which constitutional norm should be prioritised in this unprecedented situation. Based on this background, this session examines the cases in France, Switzerland, the United States and Japan, and explores the possibility of legislation and interpretation of constitutional laws from multidisciplinary perspectives.
