Started in Spring 2020, The Covid-19 and Democracy Project explores the intersection between the Covid-19 pandemic and democratic politics and policy.

Based at Kingston University, London, the project is committed to engaging with academics, educators, elected officials and election candidates, and practitioners to develop insights about the Covid-19 pandemic and democracy.

Project outputs so far include a comparative report, e-briefings, audio-briefings, a project podcast, conference and public talks and papers, and op-eds and comment pieces.

The project has generated domestic and international media coverage and interviews and has won competitively awarded funding.
