Peace Agreements Database

The Peace Agreement Database provides details of over 640 peace agreements signed since 1990, addressing conflicts that affect over 85 jurisdictions. The Database lists peace agreements by conflict, and gives details of the date signed, parties and third parties to each agreement. Further, the Database provides details of the substance of the each agreement, by setting out the location in the text and a short synopsis of each agreement's provisions in the following categories: dealing with the past (amnesty, past mechanism, prisoner release, victims), undoing the legacy of the past (refugees, land), state institutional reform (criminal justice, policing, judicial reform, new rights institutions), enforcing the agreement (enforcement mechanism, international community, UN involvement), and agreement provisions addressing a range of other issues, such as women, civil society, and socio-economic/development. The Database also indicates where the full text of each peace agreement can be found. The database should be referenced as 'Peace Agreement Database', Bell and O'Rourke (2010).
