Sud?o: entre a promessa de paz no sul e a incerteza da guerra no Darfur
Nascimento, Daniela;
Contexto Internacional , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-85292009000300002
Abstract: for more than two decades, sudan has experienced a particularly violent conflict, opposing the northern arab muslim dictatorial government and the southern christian and animist rebels. often considered as an example of the "clash of civilisations" predicted by samuel huntington (1996), the sudanese conflict hides, however, a much more complex reality characterised by deep political and socioeconomic inequalities and asymmetries. for the biggest country in africa, the promises of peace came with the comprehensive peace agreement signed in 9 january, 2005. putting an end to an equally long and complex peace process, this agreement is an ambitious one, including several protocols on power and wealth-sharing and allowing, for the first time, for a possible secession of the south, through a referendum to be held at the end of a six-year interim period, during which there will be a govern of national unity. but peace in sudan is still uncertain, made difficult by the many obstacles to the implementation of the agreement and challenged by a genocidal violence in darfur and an increasing instability in the eastern regions. through a more rigorous analysis of the complexities of war and peace in sudan, this paper aims at evaluating the recent developments of the peace process and understanding the challenges posed to the prospects of a more peaceful and prosperous future in the country.

Abstract: ln this article the Colombian peace process is analyzed in light of the influence exerted by diverse international factors. The author takes into account the postures adopted by the United States, Europe and neighboring countries, while elaborating a series of foreign policy directives designed to create a more positive insertion of Colombia into the international context. Subsequently, possible future scenarios for the peace process are proposed, based upon other regional experiences.
El papel de los líderes religiosos de Israel-Palestina en el proceso de paz israelo-palestino
Luis Fontes
UNISCI Discussion Papers , 2007,
Abstract: In Israel-Palestine, as in the rest of the Middle East, religion is a fundamental factor in shaping the identity of people and it affects all aspects of social and political life. It is necessary to tackle the religious issue to achieve true pace, beyond mere short-lived arrangements. The main religious figures of Israel and Palestine are too dependent on the political power and this dependence makes them unable to play a prophetic role of reconciliation. Still, it has been a tragic mistake of both Israeli politicians and the former Palestinian National Authority to ignore religious leaders, to keep them out of the peace process. The effect has been the contrary to the pursued one: to make them suspicious of the process and to polarize both parties public opinion even more. Finally, it will be impossible to solve the thorny issue of Jerusalem’s holy sites without the active involvement of the religious establishment.
Negotiating Disarmament and Demobilisation: A Descriptive Review of the Evidence
Robert Muggah
Colombia Internacional , 2013, DOI: 10.7440/colombiaint77.2013.02
Abstract: Disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) are considered a mainstay of peace and stability operations. Yet, there is surprisingly limited critical examination of how they are negotiated in peace processes or grafted into peace agreements. Given the growing criticism over the design and effectiveness of DDR, it is important to take account of the ways in which it is negotiated to begin with, how it is sequenced, what is included and excluded, and the types of alternative arrangements that are intended to promote confidence among parties. Drawing on existing datasets, this article finds that provisions of DDR are present in over half of all documented comprehensive peace agreements and less than ten per cent of all peace accords, protocols and related resolutions. Moreover, conflict mediators and parties to peace talks seldom regard disarmament and demobilisation as preconditions for negotiations, wary of derailing negotiations. They are nevertheless key considerations in relation to wider security sector transformation and transitional justice in the aftermath of war.

Bolborici, A. M.,Bolborici, A. M.
Bulletin of the Transilvania University of Bra?ov. Series VII : Social Sciences and Law , 2010,
Abstract: The theme of the work focus upon the problematic of the Middle East Peace Process and the implication on the European Union. The European Union plays a significant role in the context of the Middle East Peace Process (MEPP) as a member of the international Quartet, as a major founder and through its operational missions. This paper presents a few European policies and strategies concerning the states directly involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but also in terms of countries with interest in the evolution of the Middle East peace process.
Doing Research in a Conflict Situation Encounters and Experiences
Suresh Dhakal
Dhaulagiri Journal of Sociology and Anthropology , 2014, DOI: 10.3126/dsaj.v8i0.10723
Abstract: Fieldwork, an anthropologist’s vocation, is full of tensions and dilemmas. However, the experiences of any or all tensions, troubles and even failures are a ‘source of ethnographic knowledge in themselves’. During the fieldwork for my PhD research, I encountered several such incidents, which have made my work more interesting and my experience richer. This article describes the situation of doing fieldwork in the conflict period, when the ‘peace process’ was not yet come to the conclusion.
Educating for Peace: A Case Study of a Constructivist Approach to Understanding Peace through Artistic Expression  [PDF]
Young Imm Kang Song
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.31013
Abstract: This paper discusses a project called “Making a PEACE of Paper,” which illustrates how children can explore the meaning and idea of peace through art while, at the same time, understanding other cultures in a meaningful and respectful way. It describes how students can use art and technology to overcome spatial boundaries and exchange creative ideas with students in another country. It also considers how to create ‘shared spaces’ that may help students from different backgrounds to better understand each other’s cultures. The visual art and technology projects, methods, and pedagogy discussed in this paper can be replicated by teachers and community peace educators easily and with minimal (if any) costs. Through this project, teachers and community peace educators may explore what ‘a peaceful future’ means to students and how they think this may be attained. This project provides an engaging framework for students to share ideas, discover meaning, and advance their own understanding of peace through collaboration, dialogue, and creation of artworks that represent their ideas. It is flexible and adaptable to various contexts, age groups, and settings. It also provides a model for authentic student voice in learning, extensive higher-level thinking, and a platform for collectively reaching new insights. The goal of this project is to provide a compelling way to allow students to “see” peace in a transformed way that will help lead to a more peaceful society. It is hoped that this project will motivate teachers and community educators to create a new vision of teaching this topic of peace.
A paz no Médio Oriente: entre a esperan?a de Fénix e o castigo de Sísifo
Pinto,Ana Santos;
Rela??es Internacionais (R:I) , 2009,
Abstract: the beginning of 2009 was marked by what could be important changes for the future of the middle east peace process. the israeli military intervention in gaza, the swearing in of the obama administration, the elections in israel and, following the latter, the formation of a government that brings together parties from right, left, nationalists and orthodox. haunted by the possible threat of a nuclear iran, the middle east is watching the change of actors, but the maintenance of roles, the change of strategies, but the maintenance of scenarios. the question now, as before, is what future for the peace process?

Abstract: This study has examined Palestinians’ readiness to compromise over thekey issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In contrast to existing opinion poll results the claim that Palestinians support a territorial compromise over historical Palestine, this study indicates a radicalization of Palestinian attitudes. Four survey studies, conducted in 1997, 2001, 2006 and 2009, reveal that Palestinian support for a two-state solution have decreased at the expense of an increased preference for an Islamic state in the whole of historical Palestine. Also, Palestinians do not believe that peace with Israel can be achieved in the near future, and are ready to continue their struggle against Israeli occupation in the West Bank. The study also reveals that Palestinians are becoming increasingly isolated and hence less exposed to alternative strategies in the conflict with Israel. These attitudinal changes follow the negative developments in the peace process and the violence that eruptedbetween Israelis and Palestinians in September 2000. Consequently, the lack of current public pressure on the Palestinian leadership to find a political compromise with Israel risks continued deadlock in the conflict. These changes also partly explain why Palestinians voted the Hamas movement into power in the January 2006 election.
