ACLED Releases October 2015 Conflict Trends

The October 2015 issue of Conflict Trends focuses on the recent coup attempt and popular mobilisation in Burkina Faso, one-sided violence and strategic power-sharing in Burundi, the geography of rebellion in Democratic Republic of Congo, political dialogue and military power play in Libya and by-election violence and UPND incited riots in Zambia.

Two Special Reports explore the potential for electoral violence in Burkina Faso, Central African Republic and Ivory Coast in October and the role of Pro-Government Militias in competitive, institution-alised power structures.

Elsewhere on the continent, Algeria remains fraught with socio-political insecurity as protests continue, public sector protests were the dominant form of dissent in Nigeria, and Sudan experienced a sustained reduction in violence levels.
