Words over war: mediation and arbitration to prevent deadly conflict

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Jan 28, 2000 - Law - 447 pages
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.
