COVID-19, Peace, Conflict, and Violence: “Big” Insights from Big Data

The November Data for Peace Dialogue was dedicated to the connections between COVID-19, peace, and security. The pandemic has postponed elections, delayed implementation of peace agreements, and obstructed mediation efforts. While most of the response has focused on mitigating its health, social, and economic impacts, COVID-19 has also significantly affected peace, security, conflict, and violence—in many cases, reversing pre-pandemic peacebuilding gains.
