Publication date: 
Accord issue: 

The Tajik peace process brought together a range of international partners who, with UN leadership, were able to coordinate their interventions effectively to support the efforts of Tajiks to end the war. Vladimir Goryayev analyses the architecture of international involvement in the Tajik peace process, looking at the role of regional intergovernmental organisations, international NGOs, regional peacekeepers, and the UN’s special envoys, departments and humanitarian agencies. He concludes by setting out the widely acknowledged strengths of the Tajik model of international involvement as well as some lesser known problems with it.
