Five of the 15 states in West Africa experienced internal armed conflict in 2021: Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger and Nigeria.1 The focus of this section is, however, on high-intensity armed conflicts (1000–9999 conflict-related deaths in the year), thereby excluding Benin (which had less than 100 estimated conflict-related deaths in 2021). Conflict-related fatalities decreased in Mali compared to 2020, but increased in Burkina Faso, Niger and Nigeria. This section is divided into three main themes: (a) key developments in the region; (b) multilateral peace and counterterrorism operations; and (c) internal armed conflicts, including the role of self-defence armed groups and current circumstances in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger and Nigeria.
