With almost 600,000 Europeans infected with COVID-19, entire economies under lockdown, and borders in the EU’s coveted passport-free Schengen Area closed since mid-March, leaders in the EU institutions and national governments have spent the past months in crisis mode to mitigate the socio-economic impacts of the crisis.
Within just a few weeks, the need to effectively and forcefully respond to the seemingly ever-escalating crisis has led to political leaders, across the continent, putting in place previously unimaginable economic response measures to protect workers, businesses and economies.
This document aims to provide a comprehensive overview of EU institution and national economic response measures. Given the political, economic and social inter-connectedness of countries in Europe, this document sets out measures undertaken by the European Union institutions, EU Member States, the United Kingdom and members of the European Economic Area.
