The paper analyses certain transformations in the production and application of the law during the Covid-19 pandemic. The analysis focuses on Slovenia, although its claims and conclusions can easily be generalized. The author first claims that the Slovenian government securitized public health – a move which gave it access to a broad array of exceptional measures, without having to declare the state of emergency. Secondly, he illustrates how the management of the epidemic was “administrativized”. The administrativization of government is seen as a technique of governing which shifts the centre of decision-making activities towards executive agencies and substitute statutes for sub-statutory acts as the principle decision-making mechanism. This technique is seen as particularly problematic when applied to the curtailment of fundamental freedoms.

Abstract

The paper analyses certain transformations in the production and application of the law during the Covid-19 pandemic. The analysis focuses on Slovenia, although its claims and conclusions can easily be generalized. The author first claims that the Slovenian government securitized public health – a move which gave it access to a broad array of exceptional measures, without having to declare the state of emergency. Secondly, he illustrates how the management of the epidemic was “administrativized”. The administrativization of government is seen as a technique of governing which shifts the centre of decision-making activities towards executive agencies and substitute statutes for sub-statutory acts as the principle decision-making mechanism. This technique is seen as particularly problematic when applied to the curtailment of fundamental freedoms.
