Emigrant Policies Index (EMIX) Dataset

Over the last decades states of origin have increasingly adopted policies to keep political, economic or political ties with their emigrants (i.e. non-resident citizens). These emigrant policies vary among different countries and include programs as diverse as return policies, dual citizenship, the stimulation of remittances and the creation of government agencies to administer emigrant issues. The Emigrant Policies Index (EMIX) is a valuable tool to order and structure the emigrant policies adopted (up to the end of 2015) by 22 states of origin in Latin America and the Caribbean. It includes information about 102 policy indicators, grouped hierarchically along 12 dimensions and two components. The EMIX can be a useful tool for policymakers as well as academics working on migration. It aims at contributing to the development of this field by providing a clear conceptualization of emigrant policies, as well as empirically based data that allows users to draw comparisons across countries.

Managing resource-related conflict

Despite a well-documented link between resource production and political instability, little is known about what forms of resource management can disrupt the resource-conflict link and contribute to stability. The dataset “Managing resource-related conflict” presents event-based data on postconflict resource management after countries have experienced armed conflict related to lootable resource extraction from 1945-2013. The dataset contains four resource management strategies (exclusionary, shared, transformative, paternalistic) based on two dimensions (inclusion in resource governance, distribution of costs and benefits). The data is published as supplement to the article “Managing resource-related conflict: A framework of lootable resource management and post conflict stabilization” in the Journal of Conflict Resolution.

Measurement of International Authority (MIA)

The dataset sets out a measure of authority for 76 international organizations (IOs) from 1950, or the time of their establishment, to 2010. The IOs considered are regional (e.g. the EU, Andean Community, NAFTA), crossregional (e.g. Commonwealth of Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation), and global (e.g. the UN, World Bank, WTO). We introduce estimates for the scope and depth of authority exercised by international governments along two conceptual dimensions: delegation and pooling; describe broad trends in IO authority; and present the evidence that we have gathered in 47 IO profiles.

Non-Contributory Social Transfer Programmes (NSTP) in Developing Countries Data Set v1.1

The NSTP data set provides a comprehensive overview of non-contributory social transfer programmes in developing countries. It covers 186 programmes in 101 countries up until 2015. We provide the data in two formats. The text format consists of a list of countries included and descriptive programme profiles. The table format was obtained by encoding all details and characteristics of the respective social transfer programmes in panel form and is accompanied by a codebook. We included programmes that were in operation in 2015. While the earliest programme started in 1912, most programmes were adopted starting in the 1990s.

Regime Legitimation Expert Survey (RLES)

We present a data set on authoritarian regimes’ claims to legitimacy that is based on leading experts’ assessments of 98 states for the period 1991–2010. The experts assessed these regimes on the basis of six conceptually distinguishable but interlinked claims to legitimacy – namely (1) foundational myth, (2) ideology, (3) personalism, (4) international engagement, (5) procedural mechanisms and (6) performance. For the survey, we contacted approximately 800 renowned international and local experts. They were selected on the basis of their publication records, their local expertise and their work for high-quality country-based indices, research institutes, and/or high-profile think tanks. 273 online questionnaires were completed. We collected expert assessments for the most recent non-democratic regime (as of 2013, the year of assessment). The survey comprised questions covering the strength of a regime’s six legitimation strategies, based on a six-point scale ranging from 0-5. In addition, the dataset includes information regarding the number of experts per country and the experts’ average confidence in answering the questions on the respective country.

Replication Data for: Profits from Peace: The Political Economy of Power-Sharing and Corruption

Does power-sharing drive corruption in post-conflict countries? We conceptualize government elites in any post-conflict situation as rent-seeking agents who need to ensure the support of their key constituencies to remain in power. Power-sharing institutions---especially cabinet-level, executive power-sharing institutions---systematically shape these rent-seeking motives. Power-sharing cabinets create political coalitions dominated by small circles of government and rebel elites with direct access to state resources and low levels of loyalty towards the government leader. Also, the provisional nature of many power-sharing institutions increases rent-seeking incentives: facing a limited time horizon in office, rent-seeking elites within the power-sharing coalition are likely to capture as many rents as possible before they have to leave office. Thus, post-conflict countries with power-sharing institutions should exhibit higher aggregated levels of rent-seeking measured as the level of corruption in a country. Using statistical time-series cross-sectional analysis of post-conflict situations between 1996 and 2010, we find that power-sharing cabinets substantively increase corruption in post-conflict countries and that this effect is stronger in the presence of natural resource rents. These findings add quantitative evidence to the debate about drivers of post-conflict corruption. Moreover, they highlight a trade-off between short-term stability and long-term negative effects of corruption for post-conflict political and economic development.

Cocoa baseline survey for comprehensive impact evaluation of WIENCO Ghana Ltd. out-grower scheme

This data collection is part of an impact evaluation to measure and evaluate the effect of participation in contract farming on the agricultural production of small-scale farmers, their household income, living and working conditions. The baseline was conducted between August and Novemeber 2016. Midline and endline data will be collected in 2018 and 2020, respectively. About a third of all sampled farmers have been participating in a cocoa contract farming scheme run by the Cocoa Aprabopa Association (CAA) - a private sector initiative - at the time of the baseline survey. 240 more farmers have been enrolled in the out-grower scheme in previous years but dropped-out of the scheme by 2016. The remaining 1,000 interviewed cocoa farmers have never been members of CAA and serve as a comparison group. The dataset includes information on - farmer and household characteristics, - household assets, - land holdings, - cocoa and other crop production, - shocks and coping strategies, - income from wage- and self-employment, - household expenditures, - savings and credit.

Data Set to Article: Bad Religion? Religion, Collective Action, and the Onset of Armed Conflict in Developing Countries

Anecdotal evidence from many armed conflicts suggests that religion incites violence. However, empirical research has hitherto found no conclusive answer on the extent to which religion is connected to armed conflict onset. Contributing to the filling of this gap, the RCDC database incorporates important religious factors that previous studies left largely untested. The data set covers 130 developing countries for the period 1990 to 2010. Results from logistic regressions confirm our expectation that certain religious factors fuel armed conflict—in particular, the overlap of religious and other identities, religious groups’ grievances, and religious leaders’ calls for violence. We also find that religious determinants vary in their impact according to whether conflicts are religious or not in origin. The data set has been published as supplement to the article “Bad religion? Religion, Collective Action, and the Onset of Armed Conflict in Developing Countries” in the “Journal of Conflict Resolution”.

Informal Interferences in the Judiciary in Six New Democracies

The main dataset consists of interview data from a total of 117 semi-structured interviews, 45 of these were conducted with current or former supreme court or constitutional court judges. Further interviewees included representatives of the institutions that appoint the judges of the highest courts (presidency, congress, judicial councils, supreme courts) as well as judges of lower courts, lawyers, academics, journalists, NGO representatives, and development advisors. The main focus of the questionnaire was to gather information on different mechanisms of political interferences in the judiciary. Based on these information from the interviews we constructed a specific dataset that describes the perceived level of informal interferences in each country according to six different modes.

Properties of Interim Governments Dataset

After intrastate conflict, what properties of interim governments increase the stability of peace? Previous research on interim governments has often relied on case studies and tends to concentrate on studying the institutional designs of interim governments as explanatory variables, while neglecting the variety of reforms such governments implement. This dataset covers a sample of all 62 interim governments that followed at least one year of intrastate conflict since 1989, and that terminated by 2012. It codes information on power-sharing, international actors and civil society in interim governments, as well as how interim governments address the war-time institutions of warring parties.

Data Set to Article: Measuring the Ambivalence of Religion: Introducing the Religion and Conflict in Developing Countries (RCDC) Dataset

Despite ample anecdotal evidence, previous research on violent conflict has found little evidence that religion is an important factor in organized violence. Quantitative work in this area has been largely confined to the interreligious character of conflict and measures of religious diversity, and has strongly neglected the peace aspect of religion. The Religion and Conflict in Developing Countries Dataset (RCDC) helps to fill this gap with innovative and fine-grained data for 130 developing countries between 1990 and 2010. RCDC includes four types of religious violence (assaults on religious targets, attacks by religious actors, clashes between religious communities, and clashes with the state).

Power-Sharing Event Dataset (PSED)

The Power-Sharing Event Dataset (PSED) contains information on 41 countries from different continents on the promises and practices of power-sharing between governments and rebels for a five-year period after the conclusion of a peace agreement (unless violence recurred earlier). The collected data covers the period from 1989 to 2006. The main features of the dataset are the specific focus on government-rebel dyads during post-conflict periods, an exact temporal mapping of implemented or abolished power-sharing events, and detailed descriptions for each power-sharing arrangement put into practice. An explanation of the theoretical impetus behind the PSED as well as an in-depth discussion of its concepts, variables and coding procedure can be found in the PSED data feature (publication see below).

GIGA Sanctions Dataset

The dataset is composed of the entire universe of sanctions regimes imposed by the UN, US and EU in the period from 1990 to 2010, including those sanctions regimes that were in place by 1990, targeting a country, its leadership and entities associated with it. Episodes which are still on-going are also recorded. Included are all sanctioned countries which have been coded – at least – at the start of sanction episodes as “autocratic regimes” by the Hadenius/Teorell/Wahman dataset on authoritarian regimes (2012).
