Conflict Prevention Resources

CPA's conflict prevention resources currently include an index of publicly available watchlists and datasets as well as the Preventive Priorities Survey series. The Index is organized by dependent variable, and like the Preventive Priorities Survey, will be updated periodically to reflect the recalibration of existing online lists, the release of new data, and the completion of future Preventive Priorities Surveys.
