Global Events of Organized Violence

Georeferenced dataset of individual events of organized violence from the Uppsala Conflict Data Program

Originator: Uppsala Conflict Data Program

This dataset is UCDP’s most disaggregated dataset, covering individual events of organized violence (phenomena of lethal violence occurring at a given time and place). These events are sufficiently fine-grained to be geo-coded down to the level of individual villages, with temporal durations disaggregated to single, individual days.
