The international community can creatively and aggressively address deadly conflict through mediation, arbitration, and the development of international institutions to promote reconciliation. The editors of this book designed a systematic framework with which contributors compare third party intervention in twelve conflicts of the post-Cold War period. They examine the role of international organizations--the United Nations, international development banks, and international law institutions--and they analyze the tools and forms of leverage in successful and unsuccessful mediations. Based on the case studies, the editors identify the most effective institutions, make recommendations for improving interventions, and elucidate several important insights into the mediation process and the role of the international community in dispute resolution.

Industry Reviews

The case studies in this volume discuss at length the changing international arena and the role of the international community in mediating deadly conflict. The studies represent a fascinating cross section of conflict in the post-Cold War era. . . . Only by studying different forms of mediation, and at the same time by comparing controlled variables, can we begin to understand how to make mediation more effective and how to use it in our arsenal of tools for preventing deadly conflict. . . . I sincerely hope that this volume will inspire future mediators in their search for peace and reconciliation.--Cyrus R. Vance Jr., from the foreword
