Tracking Conflict Worldwide
Outlook for This Month July 2022
Conflict Risk Alerts
Trends for Last Month June 2022
Our monthly conflict tracker highlights one conflict resolution opportunity in July.
In Ethiopia, the Tigray leadership and the federal government both announced their readiness for direct talks, which could begin within weeks, marking a turning point in the long-running civil war.
CrisisWatch assesses deteriorations in six countries in June, including:
Violence skyrocketed in Mali, leaving hundreds killed as jihadist groups launched multiple attacks and engaged in intense fighting with security forces, notably in central regions.
In Mozambique, Islamist insurgents advanced into the southern districts of Cabo Delgado province, launching attacks in areas previously unaffected by the nearly five-year old insurgency.
After leaders from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party made derogatory comments about Prophet Muhammad, tensions rose as thousands took to the streets across India.
Anti-government protests demanding lower fuel prices and limits to the expansion of extractive industries turned violent in Ecuador as demonstrators clashed with security forces.
Last, our conflict tracker welcomes two improvements in June.
In Colombia, all parties recognised the presidential victory of leftist candidate and former guerrilla Gustavo Petro, paving the way for a peaceful transfer of power and quelling fears of post-electoral violence.
Warring parties renewed the UN-mediated April truce in Yemen for two months, making it the longest pause in effect since the start of the war in 2015.
Aside from the scores of conflict situations we usually assess, we track notable developments in June in Benin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Rwanda, and Togo.
Our CrisisWatch Digests for Ethiopia, Lebanon and Somalia offer a monthly one-page snapshot of conflict-related country trends in a clear, accessible format, using a map of the region to pinpoint developments:
