Armed Conflict Database

The Armed Conflict Database (ACD), operated by the International Institute for Strategic Studies, monitors conflicts worldwide, with a focus on political, military, and humanitarian trends in local rebellions, long-term insurgencies, civil wars, and interstate conflicts.

Weekly timelines, monthly updates, statistics, data, and reports in ACD date back to 1997. The compilation of statistics, which includes the status of conflicts, fatalities, and refugees, also contributes to the ACD Index, where annual conflict trends are highlighted. Users can generate reports, download data, and browse year-by year analyses and fact sheets. ACD also has a comprehensive historical background for each conflict.
