Peace Agreement Patterns

Peace Agreement Patterns

(p.46) 3 Peace Agreement Patterns
On the Law of Peace

Christine Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the types of peace agreement patterns which emerged from peace processes in widely varying types of conflict. It attempts to clarify terms and move beyond the difficulties of defining peace agreements by providing a classification of peace agreements, rooted in the concept of pre-negotiation agreement, substantive/framework agreements, and implementation agreements. The chapter also describes the types of issues dealt with at different stages of a peace process, and assesses the extent to which the different documents produced at different stages of a peace process are framed as legal documents. Finally, the chapter addresses mediation patterns and sets out the range of actors who constitute third parties in contemporary peace agreements.

Keywords:   third parties, pre-negotiation agreement, substantive/framework agreements, implementation agreement, mediation patterns
