COVID-19 and Organizational Ethnography

In a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the decisions of governments, institutions, and corporations influence dozens, thousands, and sometimes millions of lives. Understanding how such organizations respond to crises and why they choose particular strategies over others is therefore of critical importance.
