Patricia Justino at What Works Global Summit 2020

On October 30, 2020, UNU-WIDER's Senior Research Fellow Patricia Justino will be taking part in a panel discussion at What Works Global Summit 2020

The topic of the panel is "In fragile situations, which interventions strengthen intergroup social cohesion?", and it will include a presentation by Professor Justino related to her work in the Inequality and governance in unstable democracies – the mediating role of trust project. 

Panel description:

Policymakers and programmers have developed a range of interventions that seek to promote sustainable peace in fragile contexts by fostering intergroup social cohesion. A new mixed-methods systematic review examined the evidence to understand which strategies are effective for which populations in which contexts. A discussion panel hosted by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) will present the key findings and implications for policy and programmes.
