Recently Published Articles
- Editorial Comment: Law and Negotiation in Conflict: Theory, Policy and Practice (pages 256–260)
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.
- Law and Negotiation: A Role for a Transformative Approach? (pages 282–287)
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.
- 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.
- Normative Limits of Peace Negotiations: Questions, Guidance and Prospects (pages 261–266)
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.
- How Does International Law Condition Responses to Conflict and Negotiation? (pages 272–277)
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.
