COVID-19 Regulatory Monitor: portal presents laws and rules to tackle pandemic, as well as related academic papers
The current health crisis and its economic consequences will require public services and regulated activities to play a prominent role on the public authorities’ agenda of recovery measures. Legal and regulatory actions to stimulate the economy, adjust contracts, resume investments and universalize services will be taken in a new environment. In this context, the Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Center for Regulation and Infrastructure Studies (FGV CERI) has launched the COVID-19 Regulatory Monitor, which contains a comprehensive database of regulatory initiatives.
Based on this rich regulatory material, studies and analyzes are being prepared – materialized in papers, webinars, face-to-face seminars, workshops, statements and brief comments – aimed at reflecting on recent events and identifying actions to be taken. The database will be constantly updated and improved, keeping track with today’s fast-paced and often unpredictable events.
“At the present moment, people’s efforts are mainly focused on minimizing the loss of human life, and the crisis that is affecting all countries is of a health nature. The set of public services and regulated activities – at federal, state and municipal levels – now has a very important and high-profile role in maintaining the basic conditions for the functioning of social life. The continuity of these activities is one of the key principles of efficient and successful public health measures, to ensure a modicum of normality in everyday life,” said the director of FGV CERI, Joisa Dutra, and FGV CERI associate researcher Gustavo Kaercher.
The goal of the COVID-19 Regulatory Monitor is to contribute to the emergence of an even richer institutional environment after this crisis, in line with society’s concerns.
