Abstract:

"This volume analyzes the remarkably successful Bougainville peace process, which ended a violent and deeply divisive separatist conflict that for much of the period from 1988 to 1997 destabilized both Papua New Guinea and the wider Pacific islands region. Regan outlines the origins, features, and impacts of the conflict; examines the key dynamics of the peace process that enabled local actors to initiate and largely control it; and focuses on why a light intervention was possible in this case. He also assesses the limitations of this approach, gives twenty-five lessons that highlight the dynamics that contributed to the outcomes in Bougainville, and provides insights and points of reference for those planning interventions in other contexts"--Page 4 of cover.
