Author: Siân Herbert

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: African experiences of C19, based on a survey of 24,000 people; policy responses to tackle burgeoning C19-related corruption; and an evidence summary of violence against women and children during C19; Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including how civil society is filling the gaps in C19 responses in some countries; C19-related graft scandals; and the plight of migrants and refugees in the C19 world. 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.
