Welcome to the Spanish Nationalist Contentious Politics site!


This site was set up to make publicly available the data used in a Spanish nationalist contentious event project. You will find here background information on the project, codebooks, data, and copies of articles published using the data. You can browse and search the data and view various interactive graphs. The entire dataset is also available for downloading.

We believe the dataset presents the most complete collection of Spanish nationalist contentious event data currently available. We hope you enjoy exploring it. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
