Aiming at answering the research question: “Which conditions contribute to democratically legitimate crisis governance?”, LEGITIMULT assesses all measures taken by 31 European countries in relation to their impact on multilevel governance, through the creation of a new dataset highlighting how these procedures link to multiple orders of governance – WHO and EU above the states, and regional and local governments below the national level. Looking at a number of dimensions, LEGITIMULT qualifies the different trade-offs required in order to effectively and quickly deal with a crisis such as Covid-19, while at the same time maintaining a level of democratic governance and ensuring that any limitations to democratic standards are limited. These final trade-offs within and between the different dimensions of democratic governance in crisis management, are gathered in a set of policy recommendations, tailored to different recipients, and developed through extensive consultation with stakeholder groups throughout the project.
