|Judge Maria Laura Maddalena, Regional Administrative Court of Naples, Italy||Lawyer Mr Francesco de Leonardis, full professor of Administrative Law and Administrative Justice at the Department of Law of the University of Macerata, Italy||The precautionary principle in the management of epidemiological emergencies: from particular and specific measures to health advance planning policies
|Administrative Judges but not exclusively||The emergency unleashed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus has indeed produced a tsunami-like wave of changes not only on the medical, economic and social levels but on a legal level as well. In the current context of the epidemiological emergency, among the principles that have been used by legislators, administrators, and administrative courts, a prominent role is played by the precautionary principle and the related principle of prevention.
Taking Italy as example, the presentation proposes to move from the idea that this principle can be applied only for the adoption of particular and specific measures, and to consider that it can also and overall be instead adopted for advance planning policies.
Analysis of problems posed by the application of the precautionary principle.
