Aims, contents and method of the course

Is our federal constitution crisis-proof? What mechanisms does it provide for handling a blackout? What are the state's obligations under fundamental rights in a crisis? Who are the state actors in a blackout? How is the state's crisis and disaster management set up? What is the situation regarding security of supply? Etc etc.
