Project B12 Crisis Management in the Covid 19 Pandemic by International Organizations is led by Alexandra Kaasch (University of Bielefeld), Monika Ewa Kaminska and Kerstin Martens (both University of Bremen). Since June 1, all positions (two 50 % postdoc and two PhD positions) have been filled, so that the entire team was able to meet for the first time in person. The first task was to take stock of initial research on the question: What is the focus of the relevant IOs in the areas of health, labor market and social security? In addition, the team has started to think conceptually about how to operationalize and make measurable the coverage and generosity of services in relation to the impact of IOs.
The B12 team typically meets fortnightly in vodeoconferences. The next face-to-face meeting is planned for September in Bielefeld.
