The SDM2EPR docking data links separatist groups as coded by the self-determination movements (SDM) dataset with politically relevant groups as coded by the Ethnic Power Relations (EPR) dataset, version 2014. The data can be used for the analysis of violent or nonviolent separatist conflicts in the context of the EPR dataset.

The data and documentation can be downloaded here.
