This data collection contains event data for all regional conflicts that continued or began in the post-Cold War era, where outside involvement by a major power was present. The project traces dyadic interactions in the former Yugoslavia, Bosnia, Kosovo, the Levant, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, the United States, Russia, the former Soviet Union, the Persian Gulf, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Yemen, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Somalia, India, Pakistan, Haiti, China, Taiwan, and Cuba. The data files were created using the Kansas Events Data System (KEDS), through which the subject, verb, and object from the first sentences of Reuters wire service stories were given nominal codes. Each data file contains four variables: event date, the source of the action, the target of the action, and the World Events Interaction Survey (WEIS) event code.

These data are available only as tab-delimited files and must be read into a statistical program for analysis.
This collection has not been processed by ICPSR staff. ICPSR is distributing the data and documentation for this collection in essentially the same form in which they were received. When appropriate, documentation has been converted to Portable Document Format (PDF), data files have been converted to non-platform-specific formats, and variables have been recoded to ensure respondents' anonymity.
Sample: All cases were included where significant machine-readable material was available for coding from Reuters News Service.
