Conflict levels were high in the early 1990s following the end of the Cold War. Reported incidents and fatalities in Africa were at a low in the mid-2000s, but have risen since 2012, largely due to escalations in Egypt, CAR, DRC, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan and Somalia.
Case studies include: Central African Republic, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan.
