Critical to global recovery from the pandemic is understanding how the pandemic and related policies affected, and continue to affect, three central policy and economic domains - health, human capital and economic hardship. The Institute for Pandemics has brought together an international research team that plan to use a comparative city-level lens – looking at three global cities: London, New York, and Toronto – to:
The team plans to explore the pandemic experiences of these three global cities by leveraging a combination of administrative and survey data collected pre-, during, and post-pandemic in each. They will focus their analysis on health, education, and economic hardship in children and families as the basis for both cross-city and in-depth within city comparisons. The hope is to identify ways in which pandemic policy choices either protected vulnerable groups or exacerbated inequalities and use what is found to identify transferable lessons that can inform effective and equitable public policies and support efforts to build these cities and other communities back fairer and better.
The purpose of the session is to present the framework for this proposed research and to solicit feedback from the panelist and attendees to inform the focus and relevance of the research.
