2017 CrisisWatch #1

There are blogs here on the internet that give breakdowns….on markets, business, politics, etc……but there are very few that watch armed conflicts.

As a person who has studied conflict management and resolution I am always reading reports and papers on the different international conflicts.

I thought IST might be a good place for me to give a crisis report every month….

The International Crisis Group is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflict and they publish a watch list for people that need more info about conflicts.

Amid global geopolitical uncertainties, fighting intensified in Libya over oil installations and in the capital Tripoli, where clashes could flare up in April, while in Yemen an assault on Hodeida city by the Saudi-led coalition and allied Yemeni forces looks imminent. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), violence spiked in Kasai Central province and uncertainty grew over talks to establish interim governing arrangements. Ethnic fighting worsened in Kenya driven partly by drought. Macedonia and Paraguay witnessed heightened political tensions, while Venezuela’s political standoff took another dangerous turn.

As an analyst and teacher I am always looking for reference materials…I hope others who are interested in the world’s conflict they to will find this a good source of information.
