This database lists all agreements included on the main PA-X database that deal in some way with local issues, involve local actors, and deal with forms of local/communal violent conflict. Agreements are collected from 1990 to 2019, with global coverage. We will be releasing this in regions between now and June 2020, starting with 133 agreements from the Middle East and North Africa region and 91 from rest of Africa.  This collection only includes agreements for which we could obtain a text, and is therefore neither exhaustive of all local negotiation practices, nor clearly representative of them, nor of the range of armed actors and groups involved in local agreement-making.  While it is likely to therefore reflect some processes more than others, it forms a useful qualitative tool for beginning to understand local processes and is the only database that we know of to currently do this.  

If you are interested in how we selected documents and made decisions on coding, see our About PA-X Local document (also available in Arabic and French).
