UN Security Council Resolutions

With generous funding from the Folke Bernadotte Academy and invaluable student research assistance, I have coded information on all UNSC Resolutions from 1946 to 2008. The primary purpose of the data is to identify UN activity regardless of whether conflict is present or not and thereby assist studies of both conflict prevention and conflict management.

A list of all the resolutions with dates and votes (using the Gleditsch and Ward country codes) can be downloaded here.

A list of all the resolutions with general action types (based on my article, "The UN at the Peacemaking-Peacebuilding Nexus", which should be cited when using the data) and subject countries can be downloaded here.
