Governing the Crisis: Law, Human Rights and COVID-19 is a collection of essays by an interdisciplinary
group of experts from around the world who look at different human rights issues which have emerged as
relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic. The topics cover a range of issues in different countries, for
example, tracing apps, digitalization, privacy, priority setting in health care, refugees, cruise ships
or risks faced by children. Other chapters investigate the specific government responses in a number of
countries. In addition, topics of wider legal interest are investigated, such as the role of
constitutional courts, federalism and the concept of the state of emergency.

Prof. Dr. Stefan Kirchner, MJI, is Research Professor of Arctic Law and the head of the Arctic
Governance Research Group at the Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland.
