Event Data on Armed Conflict and Security

The Event Data on Armed Conflict and Security Project (EDACS) compiles and analyzes spatially and temporally disaggregated data on the use of violence in the context of civil wars in Sub-Sahara-Africa, starting with the end of the cold war until 2009.

The project was initiated and implemented under the umbrella of the research project “The Control of Violence in Civil Wars”, which is part of the Collaborative Research Center 700 Berlin.

The project gratefully acknowledges financial support by the German Science Foundation / Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
