About the Legal and Legislative issues category

As technical solutions are considered to tackle different aspects of the pandemic crisis, these tend to pinball into different legal frameworks which were already in place - and depending on their nature may even run into constitutional questions. This involves sometimes very challenging legal questions which can be solved in different ways: by tweaking the technology, by changing legislation - or combinations of the two. Many of the technological choices cross borders, and thus will have legal considerations at a supranational level. This category is dedicated to legal and legislative issues surrounding emergency technologies.
