The Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) is a disaggregated data collection, analysis and crisis mapping project.
ACLED records the dates, actors, types of violence, locations, and fatalities of all reported political violence and protest events across Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America.
Political violence and protest activity includes events that occur within civil wars and periods of instability, public demonstrations, and regime breakdown. ACLED’s aim is to capture the forms, actors, dates, and locations of political violence and protest as it occurs across states.
The ACLED team conducts analysis to describe, explore and test conflict scenarios, and makes both data and analysis open to freely use by the public.
The data can be browsed in beautiful visualizations and also exported. Using ACLED data is free for non-commercial entities and organizations.
