Mentor: Professor Therese Murphy
THEMIS asks: How do judges resolve the conflict between individual human rights and public health measures in global pandemics? It is an interdisciplinary research project linking risk regulation, public health and the human rights field. It investigates and appraises decisions of EU and US courts in order to develop the first comparative map of judicial standards of review in this challenging area and more generally to better understand the role of law in the context of infectious disease outbreaks.
