Forgotten Conflicts

Drawing attention to the wars we neglect

two women walk carrying water

As you read this, there are more than 40 conflicts unfolding in countries around the world. 

Many of them don’t get the media or policy attention of the wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan or Ukraine, and they may not have the same geopolitical or economic importance. But the toll of decades-long conflicts – from Colombia to the Ogaden, from Kashmir to Western Sahara – is just as devastating for the people who live there. 

In a series of special features, TNH examines the root causes, human cost and potential for peace of conflicts in Myanmar, Casamance, South Kordofan and Blue Nile in Sudan, southern Thailand, and Mindanao in the Philippines.

Then, we turn to you. Send us your reporting suggestions, and we’ll do our best to keep other overlooked conflicts on the world’s radar. Tweet us: @newhumanitarian #ForgottenConflicts
