TCPD is partnering with the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). This partnership emerged from the Empirical and Computational Social Sciences in India (ECSSI) conference that TCPD organized in December 2018. We have received a funding commitment of $7900 from PRIO to work on building an event dataset using national and local newspaper archives. This is a part of the Costs of Contention project led by Christian Davenport (University of Michigan) and Håvard Mokleiv Nygård (PRIO).
