Version V1

This collection presents information on anti-foreign demonstrations occurring in 25 Asian countries. These events, either actual or threatened, are defined as any display made by a segment of one nation's population directed toward a nation or organization located beyond its borders. The definition assumes that the demonstrations are the unofficial acts of private citizens, who need not be citizens of the country in which a demonstration occurs. Information is provided on the size, duration, demonstrators involved, target, underlying issue, and occasion of the demonstration. Additional data supplied include casualties, deaths, injuries, arrests, damages, hostages taken, and use of punitive forces as a result of the event.
