Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.26
This fortnightly 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 summary features resources on: how to understand vaccine uncertainty beyond misinformation, and how to build vaccine confidence; how citizen security and policing is changing during C19 in Mexico; and lessons from adapting sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) programming to C19. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: how C19 is increasing levels of GBV; how C19 is affecting social cohesion (this time in Iraq); and how C19 is shaping civil society (this time focussing on civil society collaboration for open government). 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.
