How do governments in federations coordinate responses to emergency situations like COVID-19?
We examine the intergovernmental coordination practices used in Germany and Australia – two countries that received international attention for their success in controlling the first wave of Coronavirus – and assess what lessons might be learned from these experiences.
Joining us on this episode:
Professor Nathalie Behnke, Professor of Public Administration and Policy at the Institute of Political Science of the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany.
Professor Alan Fenna, Professor of Politics at Curtin University, Western Australia
