Welcome to the November issue of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project’s (ACLED)
Conflict Trends report. Each month, ACLED researchers gather, analyse and publish data on political violence in Africa in realtime. Weekly updates to realtime conflict event data are published on the ACLED website.

This month’s issue includes conflict summaries on Burundi, Tunisia, and Somalia. The report focuses on protests and low-level violence in Ethiopia’s border regions, violence in Kenya around the electoral re-run, Boko Haram’s weakened but ongoing campaign of violence and continued communal violence in Nigeria, a spike in violence in Mozambique’s northern region of Cabo Delgado and the resurgence of violence in South Sudan as the rainy season comes to an end.

A Special Report explores the relationship between gender, inclusion and conflict across Africa.
Elsewhere on the continent, tensions increased in Cameroon between the government and Anglophone minority, violence escalated in the Central African Republic while in Libya, Egypt and Sudan conflict was ongoing.
