Abstract


The present paper documents the various versions of a coding schedule, which has been developed by the Peace Research Group Konstanz. It serves as a basis for the qualitative and quantitative content analysis of escalation- and de-escalation-oriented aspects of conflict coverage in the news media.
Designed for coder training, the paper presents the checklist of escalation- vs. de-escalation-oriented aspects along with a catalog of examples from empirical case studies on various conflict regions. The latter may help to get a better understanding of the dimensions and variables of the coding schedule.
