14:00 - 15:30 CEST / Track 4: Democracy in Crisis

This panel will look at the laws that have been enacted during this pandemic that have restricted human rights of freedom. With views from the Netherlands, Hungary, Serbia and Norway, it will be discussed what impact the pandemic has had on governments and what will be the lasting effects on democracies. How have countries dealt with crises in the past and have the laws they implemented during this period been withdrawn ever since?
