Understanding how historical states affect conflict and democracy today

Welcome to the project website of the LEGACIES project! The project aims to understand how historical and precolonial states have shaped modern institutional outcomes and forms of dissent. Our objectives are to develop new theoretical frameworks for understanding the legacies of historical states and test those frameworks using new data that maps the international system between 1750 and 1920
