The Armed Conflict Survey is the standard reference work on contemporary conflict, providing in-depth analysis of the political, military and humanitarian dimensions of all major armed conflicts, as well as data on fatalities, refugees and internally displaced persons.
The print edition of the book includes the IISS Chart of Conflict, which maps conflict status, type, date and fatalities; transnational terrorist attacks; maritime piracy; sanctions; and peace support and other operations. Showing the distribution of conflict globally, the chart also contains detailed inserts on several regions affected by intense violence: the Middle East; Central Africa and the Great Lakes; Afghanistan and Pakistan; and the Caucasus.
This year’s edition of the chart focuses on armed conflict in urban centres. Including concise accounts of the drivers and dynamics of urban conflict, as well as infographics on its indicators and effects, the chart is a valuable resource for those seeking to understand contemporary warfare.
