Are peace agreements negotiated more easily if they include references to human rights? If so, is peace more durable as a result? Negotiating Justice? examines eight recent peace agreements to assess how they addressed such issues as impunity and forcible displacement. It concludes that human rights can make practical and positive contributions to many areas of conflict resolution. Each chapter ends with recommendations and questions that can help negotiators, mediators and human rights advocates to address dilemmas that arise during the negotiation of peace agreements and when the latter are implemented.
Foreword by Thomas Greminger, Head of the Human Security Division at the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, and Petter Wille, Deputy Director General at the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
