This website also provides a repository of data and literature to help researchers seeking to contribute to the development of a stronger knowledge base on ceasefires.
The project builds on an ongoing collaboration between researchers from the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich, the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), Uppsala University, mediation practitioners and technical ceasefire experts.
Ceasefire Project researchers from ETH and PRIO release a new dataset covering all ceasefires from 1989-2021.
