31st July 2020
Author: Siân Herbert

This weekly Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary aims to signpost DFID and other UK government departments to the latest evidence and opinions on Covid-19 (C19), to inform and support their responses. This week, features resources on: the impacts of C19 on geopolitics in East Africa; advice on collecting data on gender based violence during C19; women leaders and the effectiveness of C19 responses; and lessons from post-World War II reconstruction. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: using a resilience lens to improve C19 responses; increasing corruption under C19; and how C19 is exacerbating inequalities. The summary uses two main sections – (1) literature: – this includes policy papers, academic articles, and long-form articles that go deeper than the typical blog; and (2) blogs & news articles. It is the result of one day of work, and is thus indicative but not comprehensive of all issues or publications.
