Abstract

This article analyses the question of compatibility of COVID-19 passes with the European Convention of Human Rights. The present commentary’s point of reference is the European Court of Human Rights inadmissibility decision in Zembrano v. France. Nevertheless, the main focus is not given to the admissibility criteria but to the more general considerations concerning restrictions of individual rights and freedoms introduced in the context of the current pandemic. The article offers some insights into the necessity and proportionality of an interference (the COVID-19 pass requirement). It also discusses if such measures are discriminatory or not

Keywords

COVID-19 pass ; victim status ; abuse of the right of individual petition ; exhaustion of domestic remedies ; right to private and family life ; discrimination
