(p.127) 6 The Difficulties of Legal Classification
On the Law of Peace

Christine Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals further with the technical difficulties of legal classification, and begins to demonstrate how a simple choice between a law and a nonlaw form of agreement does not exist in the peace agreement context. Rather, opting for legal form for peace agreements in intrastate conflict involves sacrificing a correlation between the parties to the written agreement and the parties to the underlying ‘agreement’. The chapter analyses whether the difficulty of finding a legal form for peace agreements matters to their implementation, or is a purely academic matter.
