What is Population Warfare & What is to be done? Gregory Copley, Defense & Foreign Affairs.
Analysis. By Gregory R. Copley, Editor, GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs. Crises al-ways spur people to movement, psychologically or physically. Economic crises tend to be among the more gradual in incentivizing population movement, unless the economic descent is rapid and catastrophic.
There is the promise that in many parts of the world, particularly, for example, in Africa, that the descent following the coronavirus (COVID-19) global health crisis will indeed be rapid and catastrophic. It will move people toward internal movement and possibly to a sense of lawlessness in many areas, and toward migration in others.
It is a crisis which demands governmental responses, but it is also a crisis which is be-ing viewed as an opportunity for governments to seek to gain or entrench advantage.
The result is that we are, with this, entering a new era of what can only be called Popu-lation Warfare: the manipulation of the movement or shaping of entire communities to create strategic outcomes. I am calling it “a new era” of population warfare to distinguish it from the variety of ways in which population warfare has been used throughout histo-ry.
