Data on Governance

CSCW has been involved in providing data to study governance issues in civil war, partly by making available Tatu Vanhanen's Polyarchy dataset and by contributing to the Polity project's democracy dataset. We have also compiled MIRPS which is a combination of the two datasets.


Data on Armed Conflict

CSCW and the Department of Peace and Conflict Research (PCR) at Uppsala University, Sweden have collaborated in the production of a dataset of armed conflicts, both internal and external, in the period 1946 to the present.

Geographical and Resource Datasets

The geography concept covers a large set of inherent, pervasive factors that shape opportunities for action and interaction. Below, we offer a number of datasets on specific aspects of geography that are often considered to influence the risk and nature of interstate and intrastate conflict.


Economic and Socio-Demographic Data

These data provide estimates of trade flows between independent states (1948-2000) and GDP per capita of independent states (1950-2000)
