Starting this year, the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) is launching a new pilot program to expand our coverage of political violence and protest to the United States (US) ahead of the country’s 2020 presidential election. The program will pilot application of ACLED methodology to the US case, identify local partners, and lay the foundation for a future full-scale expansion of ACLED’s real-time coverage.
Data collection will begin this summer with real-time updates, and will run for a period of several months. Coverage will continue if funds are secured to support the project.
If you are interested in collaborating on the pilot program or supporting its continuation, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
