COVID-19 Series: Governance and State Capability

COVID-19 Series: Governance and State Capability

This rapid literature review on governance and state capability is part of a COVID-19 series of publications from Maintains.

The effects of the COVID-19 crisis, and the related resource and policy options, are likely to be different in developing versus developed countries. This rapid literature review looks at evidence and experience of how countries respond to health shocks, and the implications for public sector governance and state capability. It explores the economic and social impacts of pandemics, and how these frame governance and institutional responses, and provides lessons for appropriate support to COVID-19 responses in low-income and middle-income countries.

Authored by Stephen Akroyd, Peter Harrington, and Alexandra Nastase.
