Beyond the state: The role of traditional leaders in COVID-19
November 2020

This report explores the role of traditional leaders – Paramount Chiefs, Youth Leaders and Mammy Queens – in Sierra Leone in responding to the COVID-19 crisis. This qualitative study in Kono district finds that traditional leaders did indeed play a key role, but that participation and decision-making was uneven. The report lays out recommendations to institutionalise the role of traditional leaders, in an inclusive way, to ensure further successes of state collaboration with traditional leaders in future crises.
