Welcome to PA-X Version 4!

We have updated PA-X! 

PA-X is a database containing 1868 peace agreements, found in more than 150 peace processes between 1990 and mid-2020, now with 36 new agreements. To search, choose options from the boxes below. Both simple and advanced searches are possible. Filtering the data in any way will allow for datafiles to be downloaded for the filtered subset only.

Please note that PA-X now includes agreements from a wider variety of negotiation practices - including some local agreements that are not associated with conflicts in which there have been more than 25 battle-related deaths. These can be exluded from the search if all Agreement/Conflict levels are selected, except for Intrastate/local (other).

See further materials: User guide. Peace Agreement Definitions. Terms of Use. Codebook for Version 4 and the full data download in csv (below). 

Please note that in V3 we switched to a new numbering system for peace processes. See conversion table here.
