64. Bioética y derecho de la salud pública (Bioethics and public health law)
This publication reflects upon the limitations to individual rights and the restrictions experienced during the epidemiological response to the pandemic. The discussion it offers ranges from an analysis of the legal framework sustaining such actions to the ethical questioning of these measures and their proportionality. It also examines the legal conflict between individual and collective rights and offers an analysis of the various criteria applied by health authorities.
Have we learned anything? Should the legal framework be changed to unify the ethical criteria for action in future situations? This book contains contributions from professionals and experts from various disciplines such as epidemiology, law and ethics as well as from the political sphere.
