Abstract

This Panel includes studies both on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the quality and type of democracy with a focus on a range of different jurisdictions, and the capacity of democracy as opposed to competing regime types to mitigate the negative impacts of the pandemic. Are democracies better suited to respond to the pandemic or are they, in fact, more vulnerable to it than regimes controlled by a single leader or a specific faction? While a range of arguments has been debated in the media and other public fora since shortly after the beginning of 2020, the Panel offers some of the first attempts for more in-depth analyses that are likely to be of central interest in the years to come.
