Introducing PA-X Peace Agreements Database, Version 3

A new version of the PA-X Peace Agreements Database is now live at

With this Version 3 release, PA-X remains the most expansive and complete online archive, database, and dataset of peace agreements.

New Peace Agreement Documents from 2019

This new release expands the database to cover all of 2019, as well as some documents that have been made available in 2019, for a total of 34 new documents – bringing the total in the PA-X database to 1823 documents. As always, these are coded for all of substantive and contextual categories that PA-X offers, and can be searched and downloaded in multiple formats.

Visualizing Peace

To all of these resources, we now add a suite of visualisations that show the full variety of peace agreements across time, space, and issues of contention. This is a fascinating resource for exploring PA-X data on peace agreements and learning about how peace processes unfold.

This is a great accomplishment by the fantastic PA-X team, who will continue their work compiling and coding peace agreements throughout 2020, as new agreements are signed and made publicly available.

About PA-X

The PA-X Peace Agreements Database is a database and repository of peace agreements from 1990 to 2019. PA-X provides a comprehensive dataset of peace agreements capable of underpinning both quantitative and qualitative research. PA-X has been designed to provide easy access to peace agreement texts and to allow users to explore patterns of agreements over time, both within processes and across processes.

It aims to be accessible to:

  • mediators and parties in conflict seeking to understand how compromise can be crafted
  • civic actors seeking to influence on-going peace talks and proposals
  • social science researchers interested in understanding peace agreements quantitatively and qualitatively.
