Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.5

19th June 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: virtual parliaments and virtual qualitative research methods; and how C19 is affecting positive peace, conflict dynamics and peacekeeping. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: increasing gender based violence and hunger, C19-related media suppression, the evolving new world order (or ‘disorder’), and corruption. 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. The articles in section (1) that are journal articles, or that explicitly state having been peer reviewed, are highlighted in yellow (none again this week). It is the result of one day of work, and is thus indicative but not comprehensive of all issues or publications.
