Beschreibung:
Whereas the heart of the purpose and activity of the <br /> European Union is concerned with economic harmonisation, its internal market, and the freedom of movement of people, goods, services, and capital, necessarily require public health measures. <br /> The EU is committed to both human rights and to “Health in All Policies”. This paper considers how that agenda has been confronted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It considers how the EU Treaties limit <br /> the possible scope of that response. The paper considers responses in relation to freedom of movement, the work of the European Centre for <br /> Disease Prevention and Control, issues relating to the operation of the General Data Protection Regulation, and the Clinical Trials Directive and Medical Devices Directive. It concludes with a brief examination <br /> of the economic responses of the EU to the COVID-19 pandemic. An Appendix gives a brief introduction to EU (health) law and history.
