UNC Dataset (Racially and Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremism and Targeted Violence Arrests 2011-2020)
The UNC dataset is comprised of manually collected and vetted information developed using open source, web-based data gathering. It provides information about individuals arrested and charged for federal crimes linked to ‘domestic’ terrorism stemming from white supremacist, nationalist, accelerationist, and male supremacist ideological cultures and groups. This dataset does not include charges at the state level, where many such crimes are charged depending on whether or not a case meets the requirements for federal charging.

*Updated* Far-Right Mobilisations in Great Britain, 2009-2020
The main aim of the ‘Far-right mobilisations in Great Britain’ (FRGB) protest events dataset is to map different protest actions, which might range from public assemblies and marches to severe types of hate crime and terrorist incidents, in Great Britain in the period 2009-2020.
We have conducted Protest Event Analysis (PEA), a key method of social movement research, in order to collect information on the following seven variables: 1) Date, 2) Location, 3) Social Movement Organisation, 4) Action form, 5) Reason of mobilisation, 6) Number of participants, and 7) Number of arrests. The data collection is based on the content analysis of local and national newspapers (retrieved from LexisNexis), anti-racist websites, and independent reports.
