New research carried out for the International Public Policy Observatory by contributors to the Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT) and the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) explores how governments around the world have tried to mitigate the pandemic’s negative repercussions on young adults, typically aged 18-25.
They surveyed 191 countries and found relevant policies in 23 countries and found that governments have tried to address the adverse effects of the pandemic on young adults by focusing on different policy areas – most notably education, mental health and wellbeing, job/income support, community engagement, adult social care and healthcare.
