The study of international mediation has long been dominated by single case studies or experimental approaches. This article argues for a more systematic approach and advocates a cross-national, longitudinal and empirical analysis of mediation based on actual historical data. The kind of information this approach can yield is invaluable in disentangling the structural aspects of mediation. This article presents the logic, rationale, and theory behind the most extensive data set on international mediation: the Correlates of Mediation Project. Data on all formal mediation events were collected for the period 1945– 1995. The structure of the data and some important findings are presented here. The advantages of data analysis are discussed and future challenges and developments are noted.
