Evaluating the Success of Local Authorities in Israel in Minimizing the Impact of COVID-19

Itai Beeri, Nufar Avni, Danielle Zeichik and Yonat Rein

This research aims to understand the success of municipal governments in Israel in minimizing the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic at the local level. After defining measures of success, the research aims to identify the factors- primarily the policies implemented, management, and cooperative efforts- that allowed successful municipalities to minimize the impact of the pandemic in their towns and cities. These factors, as well as policy recommendations for both the central government and local governments, will be identified and detailed.
