Social protection expansions during crisis and fiscal space: From ad hoc to durable solutions?

Annalena Oppel

No wp-2022-94, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: This study provides a first attempt to contribute a large-scale assessment of whether crisis response as observed during the COVID-19 pandemic can serve as a feasible blueprint for creating durable solutions across countries. Adopting a lens on fiscal contracts, it assesses high-level parameters of both the collection and the spending sides of public finance. More precisely, it contrasts fiscal and political feasibility by considering fiscal capacity, policy portfolios, and existing inequality levels.
