Who Were the Volunteers? The Shifting Sociological and Operational Profile of 1240 Provisional Irish Republican Army Members: Terrorism and Political Violence: Vol 25, No 3
This article presents an empirical analysis of a unique dataset of 1240 former members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (PIRA). We highlight the shifting sociological and operational profile of PIRA's cadre, and highlight these dynamics in conjunction with primary PIRA documents and secondary interview sources. The effect of these changes in terms of the scale and intensity of PIRA violence is also considered. Although this is primarily a study of a disbanded violent organization, it contains broad policy implications beyond the contemporary violence of dissident movements in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We conclude with a consideration of how a shifting sociological profile impacts upon group effectiveness, resilience, homogeneity, and the turn toward peaceful means of contention.

Global Leadership Project (GLP)
This paper introduces the Global Leadership Project (GLP), which promises to expand the horizons of research on political leaders by providing the first dataset offering biographical information on a wide array of leaders of most countries in the world. Currently, GLP encompasses 145 sovereign and semisovereign nation-states and 38,085 leaders, each of whom is coded along 31 parameters, producing approximately 1.1 million data points in a cross-sectional format centered on 2010-13. The leaders include members of the executive, the legislature, the judiciary, and other elites whose power is of an informal nature. With this data, one can compare the characteristics of leaders within countries, across countries, and across regions. The GLP thus serves as a fundamental resource for researchers, policymakers, and citizens. In this paper, we discuss the intellectual background of the project, its core elements, and its current status. Most importantly, we also illustrate several ways in whic

Polity and the Onset of Political Instability Events, 1955-2006
In general terms, discounting "major democratic transitions" in political instability analyses tends to bias findings toward over-emphasizing the volatility and risk associated with democratic transitions and under-estimating the volatility and risk associated with autocratic regimes. Indeed, using the PITF "consolidated case" approach gives the impression that "strongly institutionalized" autocracies exhibit (low) levels of risk comparable to that of the most "highly institutionalized" or "consolidated" democracies. Clearly, the relative stability of democratic authority is only realized in the consolidated democracies (+9 and, especially, +10 on the POLITY scale). The various forms of "strongly institutionalized autocracies" are 6 to 10 times more likely to experience an instability event than are the "fully institutionalized (+10) democracies" according to the full instability analysis presented here. "Non-consolidated democracies" have levels of risk for political instability onset

The Polity IV dataset covers all major, independent states in the global system over the period 1800-2014 (i.e., states with a total population of 500,000 or more in the most recent year; currently 167 countries). With the support of the Political Instability Task Force, the Polity IV Project has been transformed into a living data collection effort, meaning that it constantly monitors regime changes in all major countries and provides annual assessments of regime authority characteristics, changes and data updates.

State Frailty Datasets INSCRdata
The Integrated Network for Societal Conflict Research (INSCR) was established to coordinate and integrate information resources produced and used by the Center for Systemic Peace. The following data resources were prepared by researchers associated with the Center for Systemic Peace and are generated and/or compiled using open source information. These resources are made available as a service to the research community. All CSP/INSCR data resources have been cross-checked with other data resources to ensure, as far as possible, that the information recorded is accurate, reliable, and comprehensive.

VideoBook - Societal Systems Analytics
The core assumptions that undergird the complex societal-systems analytic framework are: 1) humans are social creatures that naturally organize themselves into self-actuating, self-organizing, self-regulating and self-correcting social identity groups that occupy a (more or less well) territorially-defined "political space" 2) authority within the group can be based on either instrumental (coercive) or sociational (cooperative) strategies or some combination of those strategies (this is the foundational assumption of the Polity scheme) 3) individual humans occupying a particular political space will form linkages (networks) with other individuals and may adopt multiple group identities and shift their loyalty or investment in those groups as a rational function of the group's perceived value to their personal interests and aspirations (i.e., pluralism) 4) the number of social linkages and groups formed within a particular political space is a function of the general level of soci

NYPD Report - Crime and Enforcement Activity in New York City
The report presents statistics on race and ethnicity compiled from the New York City Police Department’s records management system. Crime Complaint Reports contain information on the crime victims’ race and ethnicity as recorded by the officers or precinct clerical staff interviewing the victim or complainant. The Crime Complaint Report also contains the victim’s description of any non-arrested suspects. Arrests made by the responding or investigating officers are also recorded as part of the booking process and contain race and ethnicity information for the arrested suspects. Additional information for the report is drawn from a separate Homicide and Shooting Database that collects statistical information for Murder and Shooting incidents. Stop Question and Frisk data are taken from the New York City Police Department’s Stop Question and Frisk database.

The Big Snoop: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Terrorists | Brookings Institution
The Fourth Amendment, which obligates the U.S. government to ensure that citizens "be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures," was ratified by Congress as part of the Bill of Rights 223 years ago. Until the invention of modern communications technologies, it was fairly easy for citizens to know whether the authorities were rummaging through their property. To search a home or office, officers of the law had to physically enter. The Fourth Amendment generally prevented that from happening without a warrant and gave owners the right to challenge whether entries and confiscations were "reasonable."

Simple mathematical law benchmarks human confrontations
Many high-profile societal problems involve an individual or group repeatedly attacking another – from child-parent disputes, sexual violence against women, civil unrest, violent conflicts and acts of terror, to current cyber-attacks on national infrastructure and ultrafast cyber-trades attacking stockholders. There is an urgentneed to quantify the likely severity andtimingof such future acts, shedlight on likelyperpetrators, andidentifyinterventionstrategies.Herewepresentacombinedanalysisofmultipledatasetsacrossallthese domainswhichaccountfor. 100,000events,and show thatasimplemathematicallawcanbenchmarkthem all. We derive this benchmark and interpret it, using a minimal mechanistic model grounded by state-of-the-art fieldwork. Our findings provide quantitative predictions concerning future attacks; a tool to help detect common perpetrators and abnormal behaviors; insight into the trajectory of a ‘lone wolf’;identification of a critical threshold for spreading a message or idea among
