Covid-19, Conflict, and Governance Evidence Summary No.6
MetadataShow full item record
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: public perceptions of government responses to C19 (comparing views from democracies and non-democracies) and how C19 is shaping European public perceptions on issues around sovereignty, world order, and European cooperation; C19 impacts on peace and transition processes and political trust and social cohesion in Kurdistan Region-Iraq; and how food vulnerability is increasing conflict risks. Many of the core C19 themes continue to be covered this week, including: C19 increasing extreme poverty; C19 increasing gender based violence and gender inequality; the rise of authoritarianism with an interesting paper on negotiating states of emergency; and the changing world order. 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.
