Out now: the UCDP Conflict Issues Dataset

Johan Brosché and Ralph Sundberg have launched a new dataset: The UCDP Conflict Issues Dataset (CID), which is now presented in Journal of Conflict Resolution: "What They Are Fighting For – Introducing the UCDP Conflict Issues Dataset."


 This is a global yearly dataset that contains 14 832 conflict issues – divided into a four-tier typology with 120 categories at the most disaggregated level – raised by all armed non-state groups active in civil war, 1989-2017. The dataset is available here. The authors have also produced issue narratives summarizing each group's issue profile that are available at the UCDP Conflict Encyclopedia.
