Abstract:

This textbook takes a multi-perspective approach to the study of conflict management in divided societies. The philosophies underpinning constitutional design are clearly explained, including power sharing, centripetalism, power dividing and territorial self-governance. The actors and processes involved, and the practicalities of the settlement process are covered in conceptual and theoretical contributions that include the evolution of diplomacy in peacemaking. The book ends with empirical case studies that explore the realities on the ground by specialists drawing on their experience of working in conflict zones.
