PAC Database update – August 2022

The Political Apologies Database has been updated! The latest version of the Database, dated August 2022, includes apologies that have been offered recently as well as older apologies that we recently found. We added 20 apologies, from countries including Slovakia, Bolivia, New Zealand, and Belgium.

We also added the English translations (by a translation company) of 23 apologies. These include apologies offered by political representatives in countries such as Mexico, the Netherlands, and Denmark.

A special thank you to our research assistant Mara van Lidth de Jeude who worked hard to find the new additions to our database using our data search methods (see our published article in the Journal of Peace Research here)!
