Seven countries in Asia and Oceania experienced active armed conflicts in 2019—three in South Asia: Afghanistan (major internationalized civil war), India (high-intensity as a result of combined interstate border and subnational armed conflicts) and Pakistan (high-intensity as result of combined interstate border and subnational armed conflicts), as discussed in section II; and four in South East Asia: Indonesia (low-intensity subnational armed conflict), Myanmar (high-intensity subnational armed conflict), the Philippines (high-intensity as a result of combined subnational armed conflict and high levels of violence against civilians in a ‘war on drugs’) and Thailand (low-intensity subnational armed conflict), as discussed in section III.1 Alongside these armed conflicts parts of Asia and Oceania continued to be affected by instability arising from a variety of causes, with no single unifying trend (other than China–United States rivalry), and important subregional differences.
