Since January 2014, armed conflicts and war have killed more than 214,000 people worldwide.

  • Approximately one third of all victims - about 77,000 people - were claimed in the war in Syria alone during the period. 
  • An additional 40,000 casualties are attributable to a conflict minimally discussed by Western media - the civil war that erupted in December 2013 in South Sudan, the world's youngest country.
  • The war in Ukraine, which began in 2014, had already taken at least 4,843 lives.

Some ongoing conflicts last for decades. The combined death toll of the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since the 1970s - including the LRA insurgency, Katanga insurgency, and the Kivu conflict - has surpassed 400,000. In Burma (Myaynmar), internal conflict since 1948 has added another 200,000 to the worldwide death toll. Meanwhile, the nearly decade long Mexicon drug wars is estimated to claim 5,000-10,000 victims annually.

Nigeria: Armed Conflicts, Military Spending, and the Economic Context
