Washington, DC Public Program: The State of Conflict and Violence in Asia
Event: Thursday, October 12, 2017, Washington, DC
9:30 am – 11:00 am
How do conflict and violence affect Asia? What are their roots, and how have they evolved within countries over time? What countries are particularly prone to different forms of conflict and violence?
To attempt to answer these questions, The Asia Foundation is pleased to launch The State of Conflict and Violence in Asia, which contains evidence-based analyses of historical patterns and current trends in conflict and violence in 14 Asian countries, including in some of the most entrenched and complex places in the world. Co-authors Patrick Barron and Sana Jaffrey will discuss the volume’s country reports and five thematic, expert essays—focusing on inter-communal violence, gender-based violence, land and natural resource conflicts, cross-border insurgency and terrorism, and the links between conflict and regime type—and draw out broader findings and implications. Designed for government officials and diplomats, scholars, aid and development professionals, business leaders, international affairs and security analysts, and activists, The Asia Foundation’s forthcoming volume presents a concise overview of the diversity and complexity of conflict and violence in Asia today.
