It is an undeniable fact of life that many states will at some stage be confronted with emergencies, serious crisis situations, such as pandemic or other kinds of serious societal upheavals, and that in such situations they may consider it necessary, in order to protect the community, to limit the enjoyment of individual rights and freedoms and possibly even to suspend their enjoyment altogether. The result may be disastrous not only on the human rights for the persons affected by the restrictions but also on the community in general. Human Rights such as freedom of movement, mobility rights, or the right to travel is a human rights concept encompassing the right of individuals to travel from place to place within the territory of a country, such a right is provided in the constitutions of numerous states, and in documents reflecting norms of international law.
