Devolution and COVID-19: Italy: did the virus infect the regional system?

As the world copes with COVID-19, federations are no exception. In a new series, practitioners and experts from around the world will share perspectives on how federalism has shaped their country’s pandemic response. The authors will also examine possible future implications of the crisis on the governance system.

In our second paper in the Devolution series, Francesco Palermo  talks about the first European country to get hit by the COVID crisis and how their response will change governance in the future.
