Description
  • Abstract

    The dataset contents are from the most visible forms of assembly (demonstrations, protest marches, and strikes) and were collected with a Protest Event Analysis (PEA) from online newspaper articles of “The Irrawaddy” (English version). The coding followed to great extent the scheme of the Prodat project, conducted by Dieter Rucht (1993-2011), and includes 113 variables ranging from information on the actual moment of the protest event to the aftermath (e.g., legal consequences for protesters, successful claims, ...). The dataset was created for a research project testing if Myanmar has seen a 'meaningful liberalization' since the semi-civilian president Thein Sein took office in 2011 (forthcoming, see andybuschmann.com).
