The goal of this project is to develop an expertise which, based on quantitative and qualitative analyses of the challenges arising from the current Corona-Crisis for German local communities, shall propose concrete measures that could reflect quick, easy and targeted solutions to deal with the crisis.
The premise of the expertise consists of the notion that the local community is the smallest unit on which a federal stimulus package should rely on (an on which it could fail). Therefore, it is important that the local communities continue despite of the crisis to work. The study shall consist of two parts:
Part I: short and medium-run challenges due to the current Corona crisis
Part II: Measures for a potential stimulus package
