Abstract:Exceptional, extreme, unforeseeable circumstances may lead a state, within a given territory, for a given period of time, to a restriction of human rights during a state of emergency. certain fundamental freedoms may be restricted during this period. in the drc, the presidential order of march 24, 2020, which declared a state of health emergency to combat the spread of the covid-19 pandemic, limited a large number of human rights. this article raises the question of whether all human rights can be limited in such circumstances and, if not, which rights can be limited and what are the requirements of this limitation on a temporary and spatial level.
