Human Security Brief 2006
This Human Security Brief aims to update the core data on trends in political violence around the world that were published in the 2005 Human Security Report. The first chapter reviews the latest findings of two databases that measure global and regional trends in the number of armed conflicts and their associated battle deaths. The second chapter compares the findings of three datasets that seek to measure the number of civilians intentionally killed in campaigns of political violence. The third chapter analyzes the findings of a new dataset that provides a comprehensive account of how wars end in the post World War II era.
