PA-X database expanded to June 2020


We’ve updated our PA-X Peace Agreements Database with new agreements covering the first half of 2020. With this release, PA-X remains the most expansive and complete online archive, database, and dataset of peace agreements.

New Peace Agreement Documents from 2020

The new release expands the PA-X database with an additional 36 new documents covering more than 150 peace processes between 1990 and 1 June 2020, bringing the PA-X database to a total of 1868 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.

This release also updates PA-X Local, which lists agreements that deal with local issues, involve local actors, and deal with forms of local/communal violent conflict; as well as PA-X Gender, which contains more detailed analysis of the agreements that mention women, girls, or gender.

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.

PA-X is designed 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.

PA-X also includes 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.
