HD Centre Publishes Report on Conflict Resolution Trends

The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD Centre) has just launched a new pilot publication, Charting the roads to peace – Facts, figures and trends in conflict resolution, a statistical overview of peace process trends which provides data and analysis on past and current peace processes. The report focuses on three areas: historical and recent trends in mediation; trends in justice and weapons control, and the status of peace processes in various armed conflicts in 2006 as well as the problem of terrorist lists.

Produced in collaboration with Columbia University, Georgetown University, the University of British Columbia as well as the Autonomous University of Barcelona, this short publication seeks to highlight key global peace trends. It is based on a small selection of the growing hard data on conflict resolution, which the HD Centre believes will be a useful complement to analysis based on experience of what works and what does not in peacemaking. Charting the roads to peace – Facts, figures and trends in conflict resolution is available online at http://m1e.net/c?70680611-zOB14fEhb4Ohg%402839307-7Bid9XrUrgpSQ.

    Excellent report on the long-term trends of conflict resolution done by researchers from a number of universities!

    What particularly impressed me was that the next step after proving these points could be for the Centre to consider how Mediation and Conflict Resolution can actually become “Growth Businesses” in the international relations arena. First, with over 60% of all conflicts currently using mediation and with mediators initiating the talks, there is great potential to intervene before conflict and war breaks out.
    (Case in point: Western Sahara which is currently one of the 27 out of 44 unresolved conflicts that is ready to explode.)
    Second, I would propose a follow-up study on “interruptions” in the peace process with a new focus on the impact of regional organizations to change the course.
    Third, congratulations on making such headway in the field of conflict resolution research.

    Sincerely, Mary Weed
