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: a C19 conflict sensitivity tool; a database on ceasefire updates; C19 lessons from the 14th century Black Plague; and perceptions about European cooperation related to C19. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: C19 and increasing gender based violence; the shifting global order; C19-related corruption; and the heightened vulnerability faced by children, refugees and internally displaced people. 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.
