PSRP’s Programme Director, Christine Bell, writes about designing the most effective responses to the COVID-19 pandemic in impoverished, conflict-affected regions.
Just Security has published a blog by PSRP Director Christine Bell, on the ways in which conflict, peace processes and COVID-19 responses can be expected to affect each other.
