(Un)ending conflict : challenges in post-war bargaining

Author

Summary, in English

This article emphasizes the continuities rather than the discontinuities between war and peace, suggesting that warfare as well as the making of peace can be seen as parts of a continuous bargaining process. It presents an analytical framework for past-war bargaining proceeding from four challenges which affect the balance between cooperation and conflict: (1) the timing of war endings; (2) leadership and domestic public opinion; (3) the (re)framing of enemy images and (re)construction of relations; and (4) intervention by third parties. The case of Israeli-Palestinian bargaining after the 1993 Declaration of Principles is used to illustrate the complexities and challenges of transitions from war to peace.
