About UCDP

The Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) has recorded ongoing violent conflicts since the 1970s. The data provided is one of the most accurate and well-used data-sources on global armed conflicts and its definition of armed conflict is becoming a standard in how conflicts are systematically defined and studied.

UCDP Managing Intrastate Conflict (MIC) Africa Dataset, v. 2.1-2013

The UCDP Managing Intrastate Conflict (MIC) Africa Dataset was released in October 2013. The event-based dataset covers third party intervention in conflict dyads in Africa 1993-2007. The dataset is an extension of the Managing Intrastate Low-Level Conflict (MILC) which was developed by the UCDP and the Folke Bernadotte Academy. Compared to the MILC dataset, MIC covers all conflicts, not only low-level ones, as well as all dyads in the UCDP Dyadic Dataset v.1-2010 for the years 1993-2007.
