Powers of persuasion: Incentives, sanctions and conditionality in peacemaking

Feb 2008
Faced with the problem of how to respond to the challenges of intra-state armed conflict, international policymakers often turn to incentives, sanctions and conditionality in the hope that these tools can alter the conflict dynamics and influence the protagonists' behaviour. Drawing on case studies from around the world, Accord issue 19 suggests that while these instruments have in some cases helped tip the balance towards settlement, in many others they been ineffective, incoherent or subsumed into the dynamics of the conflict.

A question of sovereignty: The Georgia–Abkhazia peace process

Oct 1999
Accord issue 7, A question of sovereignty: The Georgia–Abkhazia peace process, explores the background and issues at the heart of the Georgia–Abkhazia conflict – the Abkhaz demand for sovereignty and why Georgia refuses to grant it. The publication offers an insight into a political stalemate. It flags possible avenues out of the deadlock, including the need for political constituencies on both sides to engage more effectively with the challenge of democratisation and economic cooperation.
