The project addresses two questions: What has the response been to the COVID pandemic among the V4 leaders?; and How can an adaptive leadership approach better aid the V4 societies to navigate the health and societal effects of this and future pandemics? The team’s approach will be interdisciplinary in terms of sources, theories and methods. The outcomes will be both academic and practical, directed at experts, the professional and NGO environment (research studies, Colloquium), the greater public (media articles), and high school and university students (on-line lectures, Thesis Awards).
