Resilience of States versus Conspiracy Theories: A Romanian Approach on Covid-19

Author(s): Cristian Barna, Iulian Dinulescu

It is becoming increasingly clear that the COVID-19 pandemic is producing severe effects, with profound societal implications, affecting our daily lives. Thus, we need to learn or remember words such as action commander, lockdown, quarantine etc, which come bundled with the implications generated in the societal plan by the actions described in these words. The purpose of this study is to analyze, using the concept of resilience, how state institutions and citizens in Romania relate to democratic values, separation of powers, vulnerabilities, risks and threats to the security of the citizens and the state, in this complex and unpredictable environment generated by COVID-19, to which are added the fake news that promote conspiracy theories.
