Assignment ‘Corona research in the border region of North Rhine-Westphalia-Netherlands’ (NRW-NL)
Border regions have suffered from the impact of COVID-19. This assignment is thus designed to examine the effects of the spread of the corona virus in the border regions of North Rhine-Westphalia-Netherlands. Through analyzing the spread of the virus in these border regions, and also in comparison with the domestic patterns, this project intends to provide some insight in the relevant policy measures (e.g. closing borders), whether they are effective in controlling the spread of the virus. Hopefully, the insight gained from this assignment can be of use for future policy-making in handling similar cricisis.
