Despite its legal content, the limitations of negative rights and liberties are affecting directly the citizens, who clearly identify that not being allowed to exit their home infringes on their constitutional rights, but at the same time on their everyday lives. The seemingly legal debate therefore automatically acquires a political dimension as well.
The impact of the pandemic on social rights is as well crucial. What were the lessons learned during the global financial crisis? How will the financial burden of this new crisis be allocated?
Is there a progressive approach – in terms of extend and criteria – to this necessary limitation of fundamental rights? Could progressives develop concrete and specific policy proposals with respect to legal theory, in order to shape this liquid environment?
