Levant and Balkans Mediation data sets

Folder containing tab-delimited files for third-party "mediation episodes" in the Levant (April 1979 - December 1998) and Balkans (June 1991 - May 1999). A mediation episode is defined as a specific mediator (e.g. USA or UN) meeting with both parties to a conflict within a period of a week; these are aggregated by month. These data were used in the paper Analyzing the Dynamics of International Mediation Processes in the Middle East and the former Yugoslavia (Deborah J. Gerner and Philip A. Schrodt). This is part of an on-going research project and we are likely to be posting new data sets dealing with mediation in the near future.
