Social Protection in the Western Balkans: responding to the COVID-19 crisis [pdf]Website  abstract   bibtex   
In the Western Balkans, the COVID-19 pandemic has been met by already weak social pro-tection systems. The broader social impacts are likely to be both severe and long-lasting. Some positive lessons can be drawn from the initial social policy response by regional governments, including chang-es to non-contributory cash benefits and insurance-based schemes, which have contribut-ed to reducing income shocks. At the same time, investments were overall modest, some especially vulnerable groups were not targeted, and the effect of one-off measures must remain limited
