We are in the midst of a pandemic shock as well as a deep economic recession. It necessitates extraordinary policy action. However, we do not have the luxury of time to carry out a new research plan. The situation calls for immediate reflection and action, based on available data.
In the Covid-19 Series of Occasional Policy Papers, MIDS faculty contemplate on diverse issues of importance, contextualise their work to the contemporary challenge, draw attention to linkages with interrelated sectors and issues, and suggest short-to-medium-term policy measures.
This series would be a useful input in the design of the state's post-pandemic socio-economic policy.
