Asia and Major Powers Dyadic Interactions, 1956-1968 (ICPSR 5406) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection provides information on the dyadic interactions between the Asian states and the major powers in the period 1956-1968. Information is provided for the measure of cooperative and conflictual behavior between the major powers and the Asian states. Variables that focus on positive interaction include imports to the Asian states from the major powers countries and exports from Asian states to the major powers countries, Asian states' military personnel, civil technicians, and students trained in the major powers countries, major powers' military aid, military personnel, and economic aid to the Asian states, and state visits, formal defense treaties, and shared United Nations votes between the two sets of states. Variables that indicate conflictual interaction include minority and territorial disputes between the Asian states and the major powers, and the intensity of conflicts between them. The data are aggregated annually for each of the years 1956 to 1968.
