The dataset of political agreements in internal conflicts (PAIC)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper introduces the new dataset of Political Agreements in Internal Conflicts (PAIC) and presents a first application of PAIC. PAIC captures the institutional provisions in political agreements concluded between 1989 and 2016. It provides information on 91 variables, along five dimensions: power sharing, transitional justice, cultural institutions, territorial self-governance, and international assistance. First, the paper presents the data collection and coding procedures. Then it replicates Hartzell’s and Hoddie’s (2007) seminal study on the relationship between power sharing and negotiated agreements, showing the long-term importance of a previously overlooked realm: commissions.
