How are emergency powers regulated in France, Germany, the UK and Sweden? What, if any, boundaries are set by the European Convention on Human Rights? Mark Klamberg sets out to answer these questions in his paper 'Reconstructing the Notion of State of Emergency under Human Rights Law' with a comparative, historical and ideological outlook. The analytical and legal framework is applied to recent cases and phenomena, including: counterterrorism, migration and economic crises.
