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.

Paix sans frontières: building peace across borders

Jan 2011
War does not respect political or territorial boundaries. This twenty-second Accord publication looks at how peacebuilding strategies and capacity can ‘think outside the state’: beyond it, through regional engagement, and below it, through cross-border community or trade networks. Edited by Alexander Ramsbotham and I William Zartman, Paix sans frontières: building peace across borders includes 20 case studies from Asia, Europe and the Caucasus, to East, Central and West Africa, Central America and the Middle East. Articles also explore cross-border peacebuilding from global, systems analysis and legal perspectives, and focus on themes ranging from politics, governance and security, social and community relations, and trade and natural resources.

Пределы возможностей лидеров: элиты и общества в нагорно-карабахском мирном процессе

Dec 2005

С момента заключения соглашения о прекращении огня в 1994 году Азербайджан и Армения по-прежнему не могут выйти из тупиковой ситуации, сложившейся вокруг Нагорного Карабаха. При столь широко распространенном недоверии к процессу, вопрос в том,  может ли более инклюзивный и многосторонний подход преодолеть динамику поляризации и обеспечить лучшие шансы для достижения приемлемого для всех решения.
