In this short piece I argue that the enduring political crisis in Belgium, a game of chicken with Flemish and Francophones confronting each other in a permanent positional bargaining war, may only be resolved by adopting three parallel approaches. Not only focusing on the substance, but having more attention for the process of the negotiation and thirdly, foremost, on the relational issues between the parties.
