Mediation Perspectives: Peace Agreement Provisions and the Durability of Peace

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Oct 06, 2019 | Center for Security Studies ETH Zurich, Sean Kane

The professionalisation of mediation has focused on collecting lessons learned to inform better mediation strategies. In this report for the Center for Security Studies ETH Zurich, Sean Kane analyzes the empirical relationship between civil war peace agreements and the subsequent duration of peace. He discusses provisions that have a statistically significant impact on peace agreements; content that does not seem to have such impact, including political power-sharing provisions; and the implementation of agreements. Provisions in peace agreements on which the findings are based include: External guarantees; political, security and territorial power-sharing; reforms across multiple policy sectors; post-conflict elections; civil society inclusion; gender; and humanitarian action.
