    Editor’s Introduction

    09 May 2017. 

    Fatalities in the world’s conflicts declined for a second successive year in 2016, to 157,000, from 167,000 in 2015 and 180,000 in 2014. The war in Syria remained the world’s most lethal, with a further 50,000 deaths there bringing the total since 2011 to around 290,000 – more than twice the number recorded in Bosnia’s four-year fratricidal conflict in the 1990s. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan claimed 17,000 and 16,000 lives respectively in 2016, although in lethality they were surpassed by conflicts in Mexico and Central America, which have received much less attention from the media and the international community. Mexico had the world’s second-most-lethal conflict in 2016, with 23,000 fatalities. The number of homicides rose in 22 of Mexico’s 32 states.

    Chapter 1, Part I: Whither UN Peacekeeping?

    09 May 2017. 

    Addressing the limits of peacekeeping requires a sustained, systematic focus on the ways in which the activities of peacekeepers on the ground can reinforce the search for a political settlement. Blue helmets cannot impose political solutions to complex and deep-seated conflicts, but they can and should underpin and support progress towards solutions.
