Based in Bogotá, Colombia, CERAC (Centro de Recursos para el Análisis de Conflictos) was established in December 2004 by an international and multidisciplinary group of researchers. One of the main objectives of CERAC is the investigation of spatial and temporal dynamics of violence from a wide variety of methodological perspectives, emphasizing the human impact of conflict and crime, with a human security focus. The CERAC conflict measurement system is based on SARAC, a relational database software system specifically developed for the recording of conflict actions. This system allows the recording and analysis of a wide variety of sources and is fully geographically referenced.
