Abstract:This paper describes a project to uncover data about the United Nations peacekeeping operations (PKO). The goals of the project are twofold: first, to uncover the raw numbers available about UN peacekeeping missions, in order to reveal information about the number of troops allocated by different countries to the various missions, as well as numbers about the funding of these missions; second, to describe the process of scraping data and place the practice in the broader context of social science research in the field of open data from intergovernmental organizations.
