Continuing Conflicts That Create Refugees - January 2019

Deteriorated Situations: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, ,Sudan, Nigeria, Togo, Bangladesh, IndonesiaNicaragua, Syria, Libya

Conflict Risk Alerts: Democratic Republic of Congo, Bangladesh, Yemen.

Improved Situations: Sri Lanka, Yemen

In December, deadly clashes punctuated the weeks leading up to general elections in both DR Congo and Bangladesh, and disputes over the results could trigger more bloodshed in January. Nigeria suffered a high rate of insurgent attacks and a rise in violent crime in its northern regions ahead of elections in February-March. In Sudan and Togo, security forces clamped down on anti-government protests, and Burundi further isolated itself from its neighbours. In Nicaragua, the political situation remained tense amid growing government attacks on NGOs and journalists, and in Indonesia, ?a West Papua pro-independence armed group launched a ?deadly ?attack in Papua. In Yemen, a ceasefire agreement offered a glimmer of hope; new UN-led talks in January could lead to wider de-escalation, but if they fail the battle for Hodeida could resume. President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would withdraw its troops from Syria upset a fragile balance of forces in the north east, and in Libya, tensions rose after ISIS attacked the foreign ministry. Sri Lanka’s President Sirisena reappointed the deposed Prime Minister Wickremesinghe, signalling an end to the constitutional and political crisis that had shaken the country.
