Conflicts in the international system, both among and withinstates, bring death, destruction, and human misery. Understandinghow third parties use mediation to encourage settlements andestablish a durable peace among belligerents is vital for managingthese conflicts.

  • Chart the historical changes in the types of conflicts thatmediation addresses and the links between different mediationefforts across time.
  • Explore the roles played by providers of mediation in theinternational system - namely, individuals, states, andorganizations - in managing violent conflicts.
  • Gauge the influence of self-interest and altruism as motivatingforces that determine which conflicts are mediated and which areignored.
  • Evaluate what we know about the willingness of parties inconflict to accept mediation, when and why it is most effective,and discuss the future challenges facing mediators in thecontemporary world.
