38 Percent of the World to Experience Civil Unrest in 2020, Study Says
38 Percent of the World to Experience Civil Unrest in 2020, Study Says In 2019, nearly a quarter of the world’s countries experienced a surge in civil unrest. A recent study published by Verisk Maplecroft has predicted that those surges will continue in 2020. According to their research, 75 of the world’s countries will experience violence and break-out demonstrations in 2020. That’s nearly 40 percent of the 195 countries in the world. Their analysis is based on both predicted rises in unrest as well as the predicted risk posed by a country's security forces against protesters. Study Author, via ‘Daily Mail’ Countries such as Ukraine, Guinea Bissau and Tajikistan are forecasted to experience the biggest rises in unrest in 2020. However, researchers are more concerned about the civil unrest in larger countries, such as Russia, Saudi Arabia and China. These countries displayed high risk of backlash by security forces over the course of the next six months. Verisk Maplecroft also predicted that Hong Kong and Chile will not find peace for at least the next two years, as they were deemed the “riskiest locations” in 2019.
