Author: Siân Herbert

Conflict, violence, and peace has been the focus of many evidence requests and much of the learning activity of K4D, in line with FCDO’s and formerly DFID’s development commitments to fragile and conflict affected contexts (FCAS). This report provides an illustrative overview of K4D’s work from October 2016 until May 2021 connected to conflict. It is not an analysis of conflict per se, but of the research that FCDO (and formerly DFID) have commissioned K4D to write on conflict over the past four years. It is illustrative and based on a rapid review of a sample of papers, and thus should not be considered exhaustive or in-depth. Given the breadth of K4D’s reports on this area, this report draws on a selection of 68 reports. This report will be used as input for a K4D-FCDO learning event on conflict, violence, and peace to take place in Autumn 2021.
