Overall statistics for armed conflict in 2015 show a significant increase in the number of active conflicts compared to 2014 (see chapter 6, sections II and IV). These figures need to be treated with some caution, especially as to whether they reflect a firm trend. There was for instance a spike in the number of active armed conflicts in 2011 compared to 2010 and 2012 levels.
