Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.13

14th August 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: how a resilience lens can help build trust and build back better from C19; the need to address inequalities, exacerbated under C19, to prevent reigniting protests; and how the global political violence landscape is changing under C19. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: how to protect migrants, who face higher C19 risks; how C19 is evolving in the world’s ‘ungoverned spaces’; and how authoritarian regimes are responding. 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
