The MMAD Repressive Actors Dataset

The MMAD Repressive Actors Dataset (MMAD-RA) contains temporally and geographically fine-grained data on the actors present at protest events in over 60 autocratic countries from 2003-2012, including actor type categorization, details on repressive action, and the number of injuries and fatalities. The data expands on the Mass Mobilization in Autocracies Database (MMAD) and includes information on the repressive actors for every anti-regime protest event report in the MMAD.

The Swedish Research Council funded the data collection through the “Protest, Democratisation, and Escalation to Large-scale Political Violence” project.
