Considering a year of state-led military operations, multi-party civil wars, humanitarian emergencies and state instability due to economic and constitutional collapse, Robert Malley and Patricia Lewis examine the International Crisis Group’s Ten Conflicts to Watch in 2019.
What common trends and themes connect some of the challenges to international security?
What are the overarching regional and geopolitical rivalries driving conflict?
And what implications for international security will the Trump administration’s America First policy have for a rules-based international order, especially considering Russia and China’s increasingly assertive foreign policies?
