About the Project

The Nonviolent and Violent Campaigns and Outcomes (NAVCO) data project is the first of its kind to collect systematic data on both violent insurgencies and nonviolent civil resistance campaigns. The coverage is global but is excluded to maximalist campaigns (i.e. those seeking to overthrow an incumbent government, expel a foreign military occupation, or secede). The data project covers hundreds of these campaigns, and it allows users to study trends in the onset and outcomes of mass mobilizations over time and across regions; patterns of participation in mass movements; patterns of repression against mass movements; and various other dynamics within the movements. NAVCO now has multiple published versions, as well as several others in progress. This website provides a map to ease data visualization, as well as links to the project’s Dataverse where people can download the data.
