There is already a great deal of material available on how the public health crisis is shaping an economic crisis.

What is already a deep business recession might elongate into a depression and broaden into financial crises for governments and the wider economy.

The world of work has, for many, rapidly turned on its head. Whether workers are operating in new ways or are now out of work altogether, short term responses plus the possibility of long-term behaviour changes present complex dilemmas for policymakers which need to be monitored and appraised.

Policy Scotland will assess the likely effects of these broader changes for inclusion and wellbeing at regional, city and neighbourhood scales.
