Conceptual framework for studying social protection responses to COVID-19In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 200 countries/territories have expanded and adapted their social protection systems to support households and mitigate the economic impact of the pandemic. Maintains is conducting a cross-country study to provide an operational assessment of the way in which social protection programmes, processes and delivery systems were used to respond to the crisis, to understand the factors that enabled or constrained successful responses, and to provide recommendations for future responses and investments in shock-responsive social protection systems. This working paper describes the conceptual framework that is used to guide the research in each country. Authored by Rodolfo Beazley, with Alexandra Doyle, Madhumitha Hebbar, Karin Seyfert, and Ludovico Carraro All Maintains evidence and articles relating to COVID-19 can be found here.
