Reconciliation, reform and resilience: Positive peace for Lebanon (Accord 24) - English version

Jul 2012

Lebanon’s model of post-war power sharing and liberal economic growth has been widely praised. But it has failed to deliver for most Lebanese. Repeated outbreaks of political violence since the 1989 Taif Peace Agreement, and today fear of spillover from insecurity in Syria, show that a fundamentally different approach is needed to transform negative and precarious stability in Lebanon into positive and resilient peace.

Jul 2012
A fundamentally different approach is needed to transform precarious stability in Lebanon into durable peace. Repeated outbreaks of political violence since the 1989 Taif Peace Accord show that Lebanon’s model of power sharing and liberal economic growth, while widely praised, has in reality failed to deliver a noticeable peace dividend.

Beyond exclusion: rethinking approaches to status in the Nagorny Karabakh peace process

Mar 2012
Status – of territory, of parties to the conflict and of those mandated to resolve it – is central to the Nagorny Karabakh (NK) conflict. The question of what status NK should have lies at the heart of the dispute: independence, autonomy, self-government or some other formulation. While acknowledging the many conflicting perspectives on the issue, this discussion paper charts possible areas of convergence between Armenian and Azerbaijani interests, around which further dialogue might be conducted.

За пределами исключения: пересмотр подходов к вопросу статуса в нагорно-карабахском мирном процессе

Mar 2012
Статус, будь то территории, сторон конфликта или тех, кто наделен мандатом на его урегулирование, является центральной проблемой нагорно-карабахского (НК) конфликта.

Признавая наличие множества несовместимых взглядов на этот вопрос, дискуссионная статья рассматривает возможные области конвергенции, или сближения, армянских и азербайджанских интересов, вокруг которых будет строиться будущий диалог.
