An important trend in peace research has been the drilling down into the details of conflict dynamics below the national level. This has been achieved partly through the collection of conflict event data by first tracking events—such as shootings by one side or the other in a war—and then categorizing them and recording their exact date and location (i.e. time stamping and geocoding them). The resulting data sets—such as the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) Conflict Encyclopedia and the Armed Conflict Location and Event Dataset (ACLED)—usually focus on violent events and usually use news reports in local or international media, with all the biases that this may entail.14
