The issue of trends have also been discussed by authorizes affiliated with the Uppsala Conflict Data Program. An important contribution is the one by Joakim Kreutz in 2010. The annual update of the armed conflict record is published in Journal of Peace Research, giving the observers a basis for making their own conclusions.
