This short study analysed the territorially asymmetric exposure and sensitivity of COVID-19 and related policy responses proposed by cities and regions in Europe to deal with the pandemic. In more detail, the study assessed regions' exposure and sensitivity to lockdowns following COVID-19 and reviewed the foreseen use of the EU recovery measures. The work was carried out in cooperation with t33 and ÖIR.
The study built upon a previous publication: Understanding the territorially diverse implications of COVID-19 policy responses (Spatial Foresight Brief 2020:13).
