BELARUSIAN AUTHORITIES’ RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AS A SECURITY THREAT: FROM VIOLATING INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS TO DEEPENING THE STATE’S VULNERABILITY

Taking into consideration that many legal systems qualify a pandemic as a state of emergency justifying limitations of citizens’ and human rights, the questions worth asking are: To what extent may the opposite (not taking any actions and downplaying the problem) lead to human rights violation and what are the possible consequences thereof for the security of both the individual and the state? This issue will be addressed through an assessment of the response of Belarus to COVID-19 from the perspective of internal (human rights and well-being of individuals) and external (hybrid threats) security.
