While 2022 was a year of widespread armed conflict globally, the variety and level of violence involved fluctuated significantly between regions. Russia’s war on Ukraine dominated discussion of war and peace but it was the sole example of a major interstate war involving standing armies in the course of the year. Outside Europe, most wars continued to take place within states—or in clusters of states with porous borders—and to involve non-state armed groups ranging from transnational extremist jihadist networks and criminal gangs to separatist forces and rebel groups.
