The COVID-19 pandemic has brought along with it massive challenges related to health response, socio-economic impacts, and information sharing; and communities in conflict face additional hurdles in maintaining stability during this period. To mitigate the mutual influence of conflict dynamics and COVID-19 response, Search for Common Ground (Search) has partnered with the European Union to produce research on a quarterly basis addressing key themes faced across conflict-affected countries. Each report includes concrete recommendations for maintaining the credibility of pandemic response efforts, minimizing the negative effects of the pandemic on conflict dynamics, and identifying opportunities for collaboration. This first thematic report explores the evolution of trust in government authorities in conflict-affected societies in the context of a pandemic, including causes and potential consequences of mistrust and how this may impact the future roll-out of a COVID-19 vaccine in conflict-affected settings.
