The dataset contents are derived from the most visible forms of assembly (demonstrations, protest marches, and strikes) and were collected via a Protest Event Analysis (PEA) from online newspaper articles. The coding followed to great extent the scheme of the Prodat project, conducted at the WZB Berlin, and includes more than 100 variables ranging from information on the actual moment (size, duration, topic, …) of the protest event to the aftermath (e.g., legal consequences for protesters, successful claims, …).
