The pandemic has generated infodemic, distorted trust towards science and contested global connectivity that impact governance. Policy and scientific attention is moving to explore incentives and mechanisms to reboot the economy and reinvigorate society. Perceived risk, technical innovation and public health measures infer that the world will not return to ground zero. It is imperative to examine attitudinal changes to adopt compliance behaviors in the post-pandemic period. This project built on two-wave of original data (N=22,430) conducted in eight developed economies in the East and West. It provides panel data to compare the main effects of the pandemic across space and time. Methodologically, it triangulates panel design and survey experiments to validate causal inferences from the observations. This project will contribute to the theoretical discussion of risk management and social resilience. It will also generate knowledge and practices for various stakeholders to adjust and innovate in the post-pandemic era.
