This section provides an overview of trends in the 10-year period 2002–11 in three categories of violent action used by the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) in mapping organized violence around the world: state-based conflict, non-state conflict and one-sided violence. The overall number of incidents of organized violence resulting in the deaths of at least 25 people in a particular year (the threshold for counting by UCDP) was slightly lower in 2011, at 98, than in 2002, when it stood at 114. This was solely due to a decrease in incidents of one-sided violence; both state-based and non-state conflicts were more prevalent in 2011 than in 2002 (see figure 1.3).
