This Special Issue will investigate how public administration and policies reacted to the COVID-19 crisis in order to sustain economic development and support businesses and organizations. Countries applied different measures to reinforce economic activity and protect public health when at the same time the effectiveness of the supporting policies is questioned. This special issue aims to boost the academic debate on public administration and policies in periods of a crisis and the same time to offer useful practical implications on how the consequences of a crisis can be mitigated. The effectiveness of public policies of the crisis caused by COVID-19 is still under-researched and this Special Issue invites papers in all areas of public policies related to any economic and business activity at an international or local level. Moreover, the Special Issue invites papers comparing COVID-19 public policies with the public policies in other previous crises such as financial and natural disaster crises. Submitted papers can be conceptual, meta-analytic, or empirical. They are expected to address the background literature in their field and provide original, state-of-the-art developments.
