Continuing Conflicts That Create Refugees – November 2016

Deteriorated Situations: Central African Republic, Kenya, Mozambique, Niger, Myanmar, Russia/North Caucasus, Venezuela, Haiti.

Improved Situations: Lebanon - Resolution Opportunities: None  -  Conflict Risk Alerts: None

October saw Venezuela’s tense political standoff at new heights amid economic stress and popular unrest, and Haiti’s weak political and security equilibrium struck by a major natural disaster and humanitarian crisis. In Africa, violence worsened in the Central African Republic (CAR), north-eastern Kenya, Mozambique and western Niger, while in Ethiopia the government hardened its response to continued protests. In Myanmar, unprecedented attacks on police in the north triggered deadly clashes and displacement threatening to exacerbate intercommunal tensions across the country, while Russia’s Northern Caucasus saw an increase in conflict-related casualties, detentions and counter-terrorism operations. In the Middle East, the election of Michel Aoun as president of Lebanon signals a long-awaited breakthrough ending two years of political deadlock.
