This study contains data on 14,669 foreign policy acts of 32 sub-Saharan African nations in the period 1964-1966. Acts are defined as official verbal or physical behavior from an African nation toward any other (including non-African) nation, leader, international organization, or group of states. These are further categorized into conflictual or cooperative acts. For each act, information provided includes actor, date, target, setting, WEIS action category, and type of foreign policy instrument used. A number of five-point variables are also provided.
