Students will participate in the data collection stage of State of Emergency (SOE) events between 1945-1990. It is part of broader research examining the domestic and international determinants of the SOE declarations, executions, terminations, and consequences.
The project mainly involves hand-coding of a collection of newspaper data. The newspaper contents are related to the SOE declarations, e.g., the country of SOE, date of SOE, type of crisis triggering SOE, the national/regional scope of SOE, and the termination date of SOE. The coding procedures and training will equip the researchers for theory-driven and methodologically robust quantifiable interdisciplinary dataset creation.
