The dataset contents are derived 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, …).
