This chapter demonstrates how peace agreement solutions cannot be understood as a common set of conflict resolution techniques, but must be understood as a distinctive form of constitutionalism. Peace agreements are classically constitutions, with similarities to other forms of constitution and exhibiting their classic dilemmas. However, peace agreements are also distinctive in exhibiting and resolving constitutional law's classic dilemmas in peculiar ways. The distinctiveness of peace agreement constitutionalism is argued to lie in their conceptual hybridity as between international and domestic law, process and substance, and representative and participative democracy.
