The CIL Nuclear Law and Policy Team attended OECD Nuclear Energy Agency’s online discussion panel on 'The Role of Nuclear Energy During COVID-19 and Beyond' on 24 June 2020. COVID-19 has underlined the importance of electricity reliability and resilience during major disruptions. With governments considering a broad range of options for economic recovery and job creation, there is scope within stimulus packages to support energy systems that fulfil both these criteria, while meeting long-term environmental goals and energy security. It was in this context that the panel discussion explored the role that nuclear energy can play in the post COVID-19 recovery, while also supporting the path towards an energy future which is truly sustainable and environmentally responsible. The online panel discussants included René Neděla, Deputy Minister, Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic; Agneta Rising, Director General, World Nuclear Association; Brent Wanner, WEO Senior Energy Analyst, International Energy Agency (IEA); Juan Garin, Policy Analyst, OECD Directorate for Financial and Enterprise Affairs; Julia Pyke, SZC Director of Financing, EDF Energy; and Atte Harjanne, Member of the Finnish Parliament & Helsinki City Council. The conversation was moderated by OECD NEA Director-General, William D Magwood, IV.
Assistant Professor Tan Hsien-Li spoke at an international conference organised by Renmin University's Human Rights Center on ‘Human Rights Protection under Law-based Pandemic Prevention and Control: The Role of Proportionality Principles’ on 20 June. Assistant Professor Tan spoke on ‘From SARs to COVID-19: Reflections on ASEAN’s Collective Response to Public Health Crises’. Given that proportionality is a firm legal principle that has substantively different meanings in public law and public international law, and that the COVID-19 pandemic is still propelling different facets of governance, political, public health and legal strategies of containment, she discussed whether proportionality was a good tool with which to examine the ongoing phenomenon. Apart from the fact that proportionality has been rejected as a tool of judicial reasoning by some jurisdictions, socio-cultural contexts on law, politics and governance also differ widely on how proportionality might (or might not) be used.
