Welcome to the Oxford Compendium of National Legal Responses to Covid-19

The Oxford Compendium of National Legal Responses to Covid-19 is a global academic collaboration mapping legal responses to Covid-19 in dozens of participating countries and territories. Each entry is structured identically and explores the role of public law, institutional adaptation, public health measures, social and labour policy, and human rights measures introduced or applied as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The entries are updated periodically across 2021. The Oxford Compendium is the primary output of the Lex-Atlas: Covid-19 project.


The Oxford Compendium of National Legal Responses to Covid-19 is made available open-access by the Faculty of Laws, University College London; the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London; and the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law.

The LAC19 project is funded generously by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The Leverhulme Trust also provided essential funding.
