  1. Editorial Comment: Law and Negotiation in Conflict: Theory, Policy and Practice (pages 256–260)

    Catherine Turner

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12336

    We need to move beyond the question of whether law should constrain political negotiation, or whether law can be subordinated to political expediency. Both law and negotiation have a role to play in peace negotiation. What is important, and to date underexplored, is the interplay between the two of them.

  2. Law and Negotiation: A Role for a Transformative Approach? (pages 282–287)

    Aisling Swaine

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12277

    The concept of ‘transformation’ offers a window for examining the synergies between how we utilize law and the difference it can make in the lives of men and women.

  3. Transitional Justice as Elite Justice? Compromise Justice and Transition in Tunisia (pages 278–281)

    Christopher K. Lamont and Hannah Pannwitz

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12291

    How Tunisia's new government under Essebsi and Essid addresses outstanding socio-economic grievances and a broader legacy of structural violence inherited from Bourguiba and Ben Ali, will serve as a test as to whether or not transitional justice in Tunisia will move beyond an elite discourse and give voice to the marginalized.

  4. Normative Limits of Peace Negotiations: Questions, Guidance and Prospects (pages 261–266)

    Martin Wählisch

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12325

    Providing guidance is about walking a tightrope between being too dogmatically prescriptive or too amenable to exceptions. Eventually, advice needs to be concrete, accessible and balanced based on practice and aspirations.

  5. How Does International Law Condition Responses to Conflict and Negotiation? (pages 272–277)

    Aoife O'Donoghue

    Article first published online: 28 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12335

    This is not a call to abandon law but rather a recognition that law, in looking forward and backward from a single temporal point, can only provide partial solutions and truths and that over reliance on law's framing of conflict may lead to conflict's perpetuation rather than its successful negotiation.
