Rule or exception? The political and legal implications of emergencies

Dr. Karin Loevy, a legal scholar at New York University and the author of the recently published Emergencies in Public Law: The Legal Politics of Containment, and Dr. Yoav Mehozay, a sociologist at the University of Haifa and the author of the recently published Between the Rule of Law and States of Emergency: The Fluid Jurisprudence of the Israeli Regime explain how states of emergency are far more prevalent than we'd like to admit, and the repercussions for democracy that this situation entails.
