The International Crisis Behavior (ICB) Version 12 datasets are now available. With the addition of 6 crises between 2014 and 2015, the ICB data now cover 1918 to 2015. This consists of 476 crises and 1,052 crisis actors.

The new data also incorporate a number of changes to previous crises, based on a systematic cleaning process aimed to improve the consistency of coding across cases. These changes are detailed in the release notes that can be downloaded from the data collections page. The previous versions of the data remain available for replication purposes.

This Web site offers access to the primary data collections from the ICB project. The data are scheduled for annual updates, which will be available at this site.

The ICB Data Viewer is still in the process of being updated. It remains useful to explore the content of the crises in the previous version of the dataset (Version 10). The crisis summaries for the 15 new crises can be found on the data collections page, linked above.
