Comparing Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Alternative Leadership Styles in the V4

This project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe. More information is available at https://www.visegradfund.org.


The project addresses two questions:

  • What has the response been to the COVID pandemic among the V4 leaders?
  • How can an adaptive leadership approach better aid the V4 societies to navigate the health and societal effects of this and future pandemics?

The team’s approach will be interdisciplinary in terms of sources, theories and methods. The outcomes will be both academic and practical, directed at experts, the professional and NGO environment (research studies, Colloquium), the greater public (media articles), and high school and university students (on-line lectures, Thesis Awards).
