Roifield Brown discusses the latest research from the Institute of Economics and Peace with Thomas Morgan. The study reveals that conflict-related deaths in 2022 were the highest of this century, occurring across various conflicts worldwide. While global GDP has risen alongside these deaths, the correlation between prosperity and conflict is complex. Factors such as good governance and a sound business environment contribute to reducing conflict, but they are not sufficient on their own. Additionally, the decline in violence within countries does not necessarily guarantee a permanent reduction in conflict deaths. Technological advancements and the internationalization of conflicts are identified as key factors behind the deadliness of contemporary conflicts. The proliferation of drones and the involvement of external actors have increased the duration and intensity of conflicts, resulting in higher casualties.
