Author: William Avis

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 policy responses to the C19 pandemic should differ in the Developing World; the state of the Asia-Pacific economy in the wake of C19 and the effect of the pandemic on global armed conflict. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: leadership; authoritarianism versus democracy and the effect of the C19 on conflict: 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.
