Our Data

Our data are freely available to scholars and a broader public interested in how political parties vote on military missions. Our aim is to extend the dataset to include additional countries and to update the dataset regularly.

The current version of the dataset is available here  (xls, 248KB, including deployment votes until 5 July 2016).
