Webinar: Launch of the State of Conflict and Violence in Asia, 2021

15:30 to 17:00

The world has endured a tumultuous few years due to economic stagnation, political polarization, global power struggles, violence, and long-term fragility accelerated and compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic. In Asia, political violence and organized conflicts continue to be fueled by the rising trend toward more authoritarian governance, the resurgence of identity-based politics, the contraction of democratic space, and violent extremism—often exacerbated by online disinformation. The second edition of The Asia Foundation’s State of Conflict and Violence in Asia report explores these factors and patterns of events through regional assessments and country-specific overviews, in particular addressing contemporary concerns over political polarization and identity-based tensions.


Adam Burke, Regional Director of Conflict and Fragility at The Asia Foundation and lead author of the report.

Sidney Jones, Senior Advisor at the Jakarta-based Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict and guest contributor to the report.
