The Transnational Conflict in Africa dataset inverts the standard trope that the vast majority of African conflicts are internal and not inter-state. It captures how Africa has seen very high levels of external support in ‘civil wars’, as well as many low-intensity violent confrontations between states. Key insights appear in occasional paper, policy memo, and academic journal article.
