The State of Conflict and Violence in Asia
In response to critical gaps in existing conflict data, The State of Conflict and Violence in Asia presents a concise, evidence-based overview of the complexity of violence in 14 Asian countries, including some of the most entrenched and complex places in the world. Drawing on The Asia Foundation’s own long-standing experience in each country, the volume reports historical patterns and current trends in conflict and violence, combining analysis of published materials with in-depth knowledge and nuanced understanding of local politics and power. Required reading for policymakers, development practitioners, security analysts, and business leaders, this book provides an accurate and timely picture of conflict, violence, and peacebuilding in Asia today.
