Hubs, authorities, and networks: Predicting conflict using events data [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Political / Strategic. The authors conjecture that before states in a region engage in high levels of conflict, there will be noticeable changes in the pattern of events among the states in the region. If this conjecture is correct, then uncovering this pattern (or these patterns) could serve as an early warning indicator of the onset of serious conflict. The authors examine this conjecture using events data for the Levant region. They first use events data to create hubs and authorities scores for countries (note: hubs and authorities data are often used to identify key nodes on the Internet, with a hub being a website that links to a number of important websites, and an authority being a website that is linked to by a number of important websites). The a#uthors use summary measures of the negative hubs and authorities scores and relate these changes to the outbreak of serious conflict in the region.
