There has been an overall decline in ‘peacefulness’ in recent years, as measured by the indicators of the Global Peace Index (see section IV in this chapter). This has been paralleled by an upward trend in fatalities caused by state-based conflicts (see section III). Some regions of the world, notably the Middle East, have experienced significant rises in the number of battle-related deaths. There has also been a rise in internationalized intrastate conflict. These developments suggest a worrying upward trend in lethal violence related to state-based conflicts.
