Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.12
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: Yemeni women’s role in the C19 response, amidst war; how C19 has changed the focus and urgency of governance discourses more in six months than anything over the last decade; popular pandemic messaging frames from authoritarian actors; and how C19 intersects with political tensions in Thailand. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: the specific risks and needs of girls during C19; the importance of trust in effective C19 responses; and the dramatic implications of rising food insecurity. 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.
