The aim of this paper is to describe the conflict trends in Africa, particularly since 1990, and to compare this to global trends. This paper considers three types of political violence: state-based conflicts; non-state conflicts; and one-sided violence. It uses conflict data from the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP).
