ABSTRACT. Fulfilment and protection of human rights in all aspects is a form of
Constitutional Rights for Citizens that must be fulfilled by the State. Basic human
rights also under no circumstances can be reduced even deprived. However, the fact
is, human rights regulated in various laws and regulations in Indonesia have not
been maximally implemented. The fulfilment and protection of human rights also
faces its own challenges in implementing it in certain cases, for example disasters
such as Pandemic Covid-19. Various legal instruments, both central and regional,
were created to deal with and resolve the Covid-19 Pandemic problem. This study
aims to examine the implementation of the fulfilment and protection of human
rights in special situations such as Covid-19 Pandemic. This research is limited to
the Semarang City area. This study wanted to find out and analyze various aspects
of law and human rights in the implementation of various policies related to Covid-
19 in the City of Semarang. This study seeks to find challenges and problems in the
protection and fulfilment of human rights in the city of Semarang in the Covid-19
Pandemic. The method in this study uses empirical research, where researchers
directly go to the field. The planned data was obtained from various related agencies
in the city of Semarang, the community, and related NGOs. This research will assist
the government in mapping human rights fulfilment policies in national disaster
situations in this case the Covid-19 Pandemic.
