PA-X Peace Agreement Database and Dataset Version 1



The new PA-X Peace Agreement Database ( addresses a gap in the study of peace processes by archiving and coding all formal peace agreements signed since 1990. It currently contains more than 1500 agreements, coding conceptually for 225 substantive categories such as power-sharing or transitional justice and enabling search permutations which can disaggregate the data by country, entity, region, conflict type, and stage of agreement, and different combinations of issues addressed. The database is intended to support qualitative and quantitative research on peace agreements, enabling triangulation with existing peace agreement and conflict datasets, and support the study of sequencing and its relationship to substantive trade-offs within and across conflicts.
