Wherever they break out, contemporary civil wars share certain characteristics: they stretch over time, wreak human and material havoc, and they resist efforts to silence the guns. Why do civil conflicts persist? What pitfalls stand in the way of efforts to resolve these conflicts? Drawing on five specific cases – Syria, Yemen, Libya, Mali and the Central African Republic – this series of lectures examines the obstacles that complicate the work of mediators and negotiators and questions the limits of mediation as a tool for conflict resolution.
With Marie-Joëlle Zahar, Professor in the Department of Political Science and Director of the Peace Operations Research Network at the University of Montreal.
