Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of North Texas. and also an affiliate of the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at UT Austin; Idean Salehyan announced the launch of the Social Conflict in Africa Database (SCAD)

The database is a resource for conducting research and analysis on various forms of social and political unrest in Africa. It includes over 6,300 social conflict events across Africa (including North Africa) from 1990 to 2009, including riots, strikes, protests, coups, and communal violence. By tracking forms of conflict not covered in traditional datasets on civil and interstate war, SCAD gives policymakers and researchers new tools to analyze conflict patterns.

The Social Conflict in Africa Database (SCAD) will provide information on over 6,300 social conflict events across Africa, including strikes, riots, protests, coups and communal violence dating from 1990 to 2009.
