Managing the COVID-19 Epidemic Locally: A birdseye view of the challenges faced by local governments, local responses, and the differential local needs of municipalities in Israel

Dr. Danielle Zeichik

This research aims to describe the experience of local governments managing the COVID-19 epidemic, with a focus on five key areas: crisis management, public obedience, law enforcement, vaccinations, and cooperation with other agencies and organizations. The research surveys local governments in Israel about the challenges and approaches taken with regards to these topics, with the goal of identifying differences between localities and understanding how to better tailor policies and central government support to effectively serve local interests.
