ACLED Releases September 2015 Conflict Trends

The September 2015 issue of ACLED's Conflict Trends focuses on allegations against peacekeeping forces in Central African Republic, the continuation of a regime of intimidation in Egypt, the potential for Islamic State expansion across Africa, decreased levels of violence following peace talks in South Sudan and a reduction in violence against civilians in Sudan, economically driven protests in Tunisia and patterns of violence surrounding the Zimbabwe by-elections.

Two Special Focus Topics explore the containment and diffusion of violence during peacekeeping deployment and inequality and conflict across Africa using the Gini Index.

Elsewhere on the continent, violence increased in Somalia while DR-Congo, Kenya and Nigeria were subject to a drop-off in conflict events.
