For activists or academics with an interest in peace-building and international conflict, it can be difficult to find a comprehensive database of ongoing conflicts around the globe (although the PeaceWomen World Map is a good start.)

This interactive map of ongoing conflicts around the world, by Emmeline Booth, is a valuable resource for groups or individuals with an interest in following world conflicts and their resolutions. The map is part of IRIN’s ongoing series on the world’s forgotten conflicts; IRIN's package of stories, films and graphics has so far looked in-depth at the situation in Myanmar, South Kordofan in Sudan, Casamance in Senegal, the border states of southern Thailand, and the island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines.
