Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.18
This weekly Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary aims to signpost the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) 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: trends in defence and security corruption arising from C19, including how it is affecting gender inequality and the women, peace and security agenda, and terrorism and counter-terrorism; the need for multilateral action on C19; and C19 social impacts and responses. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: C19-related corruption; the increasing importance of technology in the C19 world; and how C19 is exacerbating negative gender norms to worsen outcomes for women. 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.
