Chapter 12: Mediation across different types of conflict

Karl DeRouen and Matthew Barrett


This chapter examines two key themes in international conflict mediation: conflict type (inter- vs. intrastate) and mediator identity (state/single actor vs. multiparty). The dynamics of these two forms of conflict are analyzed to illustrate their crucial differences and relate the resulting implications for mediation. Similarly, this chapter examines the meaningful implications for the mediation process when the complications of additional mediators are involved. The concluding section contains clear policy lessons learned from scholarly research on these topics and a brief discussion of potential new lines of inquiry.
