Challenges to Local Governance in the Pandemic Era: Perspectives from South Asia and Beyond
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the question of local governance and inter-governmental coordination to the centre of public administration. There is a general feeling across the world that the local government space is critical in managing pandemics. This volume is a collection of articles on the experiences of the local governments in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the focus is on South Asia, especially India, it also provides perspectives on Europe, Africa and Latin America. The book will appeal to researchers, policy makers and practitioners who are interested in the interface between public health and local governance, particularly during emergencies. It also provides clues about the design of sustainable policy and governance, including the type of intergovernmental relations that should emerge in the post-COVID situation.
