The Day After Covid-19: Constitutional Challenges of a Digital Post-Pandemic World
This panel looks at constitutionalism after the ‘storm’, imagining how the post-Covid19 world will look like. The Day After Covid19 is likely to have a different constitutional landscape altogether. Legal scholars ought to look ahead to the future and discuss how the pandemic might have changed fundamental rules globally. This prompts difficult questions. How will the pandemic affect the legal field as we move ahead? Are some of the emergency measures taken during Covid19 times, or some of the technological developments made throughout these years, simply going to disappear as we exit this dark moment? Or will they provoke long-lasting change? This panel argues that Covid19 constitutes an opportunity to affirm constitutionalism from a transnational and digital perspectives. It invites guests to reflect on the technological transformations that Covid brought as a constitutional significant moment for the future of the field.
