Fewer Armed Conflicts in the World

Published fredag 19 januari 2007 kl 13.17

The number of armed conflicts in the world has decreased by some 40% since 1990, with today’s figure clocking in at 30.

Research from Uppsala university suggests the drop is thanks to the United Nations brokering agreements and providing peace-keeping forces.

But the last five years have seen the number of conflicts linked to the fight against terrorism increase without negotiations or agreements in sight. Professor Peter Wallensteen points to the Middle East and a belt running from Suez to Kashmir. He adds that when describing a situation as terrorism, all negotiation is dismissed – one cannot negotiate with criminals.
