Summary
In the early 1990's three conflicts that drew the world's attention and were deemed hopeless appeared to be heading towards resolution. In South Africa, Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine, conflicts previously described by scholars as "protracted" or "intractable", negotiations between the rival parties led to agreements and interim agreements that signalled a new future. While optimistic declarations of peace and bright future scenarios were quick to appear, in reality the celebration of peace was somewhat premature. The "official" and semi official ends of conflict were yet to facilitate the return to a normal, peaceful way of life. This volume engages with the gap between agreements and actual peace by focusing on different aspects of implementation and causes that explain success and failures of peace processes. It offers different explanations for the successes and failures of the three processes discussed above, and provides historical and comparative perspectives to come to terms with their contemporary realities
