Judicialization of science and the precedents of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court on the public management of the covid-19 pandemic

The present paper aims to understand the phenomenon of the judicialization of science and how it is manifested in the discussion held in 2020 in the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court on the parameters of public action and accountability of public agents for the administrative measures adopted in the response to the health emergency resulting from the covid-19 pandemic. Also the paper seeks to understand the importance of the formation of scientific capital for the understanding of the judicialization of science, the formation and interpretation of the rules issued to support the fight against the pandemic and its application by Brazilian Federal Supreme Court rulings, establishing an exploratory analysis of the interactions between scientific capital and normativity, and its importance to assess the legitimacy of sanitary administrative measures adopted and criteria for the accountability of public managers in the Brazilian context
