Modeling and predicting coups

So, it appears there was a coup today in Mail. Details are still coming in, but I thought I would point you all to this blog post by Jay Ulfelder. It has a good summary of “collect indicators, model, predict” that shows Mali had a relatively high risk of coup this year.

Enjoy!

Update: More on the coup from Reuters here.
