ABSTRACT

Uncertainty and Decision-Making During a Crisis: How to Make Policy Decisions in the COVID-19 Context?   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Policymaking during a pandemic can be extremely challenging. As COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] is a new disease and its global impacts are unprecedented, decisions need to be made in a highly uncertain, complex and rapidly changing environment. In such a context, in which human lives and the economy are at stake, we argue that using ideas and constructs from modern decision theory, even informally, will make policymaking more a responsible and transparent process."
