Continuing Conflicts That Create Refugees - September 2019

Deteriorated Situations: Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Kashmir, Indonesia, Myanmar, South China Sea, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Colombia, Mexico, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya

Conflict Risk Alerts: Cameroon, Malawi, Kashmir, Lebanon, Yemen

In August, deadly clashes in Yemen between southern separatists and forces aligned with the internationally-recognised government dimmed prospects for ending the war. Suspected Israeli drone strikes on Iran-backed militias in Iraq and Lebanon ramped up regional tensions. Fighting intensified in Libya's south, north west Syria, and Myanmar's northern Shan State, and in Colombia senior FARC leaders returned to armed struggle. Security in El Salvador improved, but murder rates climbed in Mexico. In Asia, tensions rose in the South China Sea, clashes erupted in Indonesia over the treatment of Papuans, and India's change to Kashmir's status could fuel violence. Presidential polls in Somalia's Jubaland state deepened divisions, intercommunal attacks rose in eastern Chad, and violence in Cameroon's Anglophone west could increase in the coming month. Repression intensified in Burundi, authorities cracked down on protesters in Zimbabwe, and friction between opposition protesters and Malawi's security forces could rise in September. In Europe, tensions rose between Georgia and breakaway region South Ossetia, while in Kyrgyzstan political rivalry led to a shoot-out. On a positive note, Sudan's protagonists agreed on structures to rule until elections, Mozambique's warring parties officially ended hostilities, dialogue initiatives reduced violence in Mali's centre, and talks to end the U.S.-Taliban conflict in Afghanistan could lead to a framework agreement in the coming weeks.
