Just Recovery from Covid-19? Fundamental Rights, Legitimate Governance and Lessons Learnt (JuRe)

Public description of the goals at the beginning of the project

The research consortium JuRe explores the ways in which the political, legal and administrative systems in Finland and elsewhere can guarantee that the post-pandemic recovery happens in a fair and justified manner. The consortium brings together research on international relations, political science, political history, public administration and law, constitutional law in particular. JuRe’s research enables a distinct consultative role in the political, legislative and administrative processes that can enhance a sense of just recovery among the country’s citizens. It provides elements for a sound constitutional settlement for post-pandemic recovery, and it has its focus on openness of decision-making, citizens’ trust in legal oversight and balanced enforcement of individual and collective fundamental rights, often through cross-country comparisons. The consortium joins researchers from the Universities of Helsinki, Tampere and Turku.
