ABSTRACT

COVID-19, Governance, and Conflict: Emerging Impacts and Future Evidence Needs   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Executive Summary: "This paper reviews emerging evidence of the impact of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] on governance and conflict, using a 'governance and conflict first' approach in contrast to other research and synthesis on COVID-19 in the social sciences that tends to be structured through a public health lens. It largely focuses on evidence on low- and middle-income countries but also includes a number of examples from high-income countries, reflecting the global nature of the crisis. It is organised around four cross-cutting themes that have enabled the identification of emerging bodies of evidence and/or analysis: [1] Power and legitimacy; [2] Effectiveness, capacity, and corruption; [3] Violence, unrest, and conflict; and [4] Resilience, vulnerability, and risk."
