Continuing Conflicts That Create Refugees - August 2018

Deteriorated Situations: Cameroon, Somalia, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Pakistan, Nicaragua, Haiti, Israel/Palestine, Iraq, Yemen

Conflict Risk Alerts: Zimbabwe, Israel/Palestine, Yemen

Improved Situations: Eritrea, Ethiopia, Philippines

?Resolution Opportunities: Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, Yemen

In July, fighting rose between Israel and Hamas and could quickly escalate into a new Gaza war, while in Yemen, as violence intensified on several fronts, a UN plan offered hope that a battle for Hodeida city could still be averted. Al-Shabaab stepped up attacks in Somalia, Cameroon’s Anglophone conflict spread to new areas, and tensions rose within Côte d’Ivoire’s ruling coalition. Violence marred elections in Pakistan and disrupted voting in Mali. Zimbabwe’s first general election since former President Mugabe’s ouster went largely peacefully; wide endorsement of the results could pave the way for the country’s recovery, but their rejection could spark turmoil. Violent protests erupted in southern Iraq over poor services and unemployment, and in Haiti over a proposed hike in fuel prices. Deadly clashes between protesters and pro-government forces in Nicaragua continued with hundreds now reported killed. On a brighter note, Ethiopia and Eritrea took further steps to cement peace, South Sudan’s warring leaders agreed to share power, and in the Philippines, the Bangsamoro Organic Law, a long-awaited step to implement peace in Mindanao, was finally signed into law.
