MARTINS, Ana Maria Guerra. The Impact of COVID 19 on Human Rights : The response of the European Convention on Human Rights. e-Pública [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.1, pp.153-169. ISSN 2183-184X.

The covid-19 epidemic brought numerous challenges in terms of the possible responses that the Law must be prepared to give. International human rights law is no exception, highlighting the European Convention on Human Rights. After posing the problem, this text seeks to know whether the regime of restrictions and derogations of rights contained in the European Convention on Human Rights is likely to be applied in the current context of public health crisis. At the same time, the possible role that the European Court of Human Rights may have in controlling the state measures that were adopted to combat the covid-19 epidemic will also be analyzed.

Keywords : Epidemic crisis; restrictions of rights; derogation of rights; European Convention on Human Rights; European Court of Human Rights.
