New publication in Journal of Conflict Resolution


We are very happy to announce that project leader Prof. Isak Svensson and Core Group member Associate Prof. Desirée Nilsson's article "Disputes over the Divine: Introducing the Religion and Armed Conflict (RELAC) data, 1975 to 2015" has been published online in Journal of Conflict Resolution.

RELAC codes a range of key religious dimensions in intrastate armed conflicts 1975-2015, and serves as the data foundation for our research project "Resolving Jihadist Conflicts? Religion, Civil War, and Prospects for Peace." The dataset is a valuable resource for scholars analyzing the causes, dynamics, and resolution of religiously defined armed conflicts.
