ABSTRACT

Year of COVID-19: The Pandemic's Impact on Global Conflict and Demonstration Trends   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "March 2021 marks the first anniversary of the declaration of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). One year on, this report explores ACLED's [Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project's] special coverage of the pandemic's impact on political violence and protest trends around the world - analyzing changes in demonstration activity, state repression, mob attacks, overall rates of armed conflict, and more through the 'COVID-19 Disorder Tracker' [hyperlink]. Earlier in the project we took stock of evolving political violence and protest patterns during the first 16 weeks of the crisis '(see this ACLED report)' [hyperlink], and again after more than five months had passed '(see this analysis for Foreign Policy)' [hyperlink]. This report draws on a full year of data and analysis from ACLED's 'COVID-19 Disorder Tracker' [hyperlink] to trace the pandemic's wider effects on global disorder trends."
