COVID-19 and Federalism: Seeding Chaos or a More Effective Response?

About this Event

What is the relationship between Commonwealth and state government responses to the Covid19 pandemic? States have responded differently to the pandemic, and we have seen Commonwealth-state co-operation through novel public law institutions such as the ‘National Cabinet’, as well as disagreement among Commonwealth and state governments in a range of key areas – especially in the context of education and the closure/opening of schools.  Ultimately we will ask whether federalism has made us safer, or simply more confused, as we confront the challenges raised by the pandemic.
