GLOCON, the Global Contentious Politics Dataset, has been highlighted by Social Science Space for its innovative approach to cataloging instances of contentious politics worldwide. Authored by Christopher Everett and published on December 13, 2023, the article emphasizes the critical need for scholars and policymakers to have access to detailed information on global conflicts, turmoil, and polarization. Funded by the European Research Center, GLOCON is an automated database designed to track political events such as confrontations, political turbulence, strikes, rallies, and protests in countries like Brazil, South Africa, Argentina, India, and Turkey. Hosted at the Center for Computational Social Sciences at Istanbul’s Koç University, the project is poised for expansion, with plans to include many more countries in its scope, aiming to create a comprehensive global database on contentious politics.
