Is the world becoming more peaceful, or can we expect more conflict in the future? The impression we get from the media certainly is gloomy. But what does the numbers and facts tell us? This course will give an overview of conflict trends based on large conflict datasets on conflict related variables. It will provide a better understanding of the larger global trends in the world such as level and type of conflicts, the geography and demography of conflict, and protests and mobilization. In addition, we will explore the Colombian conflict through survey data.
