Crisis Management and the Covid-19 Pandemic: Leadership, Expertise and Best Practices

The COVID-19 pandemic was a transboundary crisis characterized by great complexity. It posed an urgent threat to basic structures and fundamental values of nation states and forced leaders to take major decisions under pressure and deep uncertainty. This project will establish a network of leading scholars in the field of crisis management that will analyse and evaluate the strategic responses of Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark to the COVID19 crisis, sharing experiences and best practices. The aim is to strengthen resilience and coordination between the Nordic countries for future intra-national crisis management.
