Managing Intractable Conflicts:
Lessons from Moldova and Cyprus

Edited by Mensur Akgün

Stakeholders involved in negotiations would often argue that international as well as intra-state conflicts are difficult to resolve particularly due to the devil hidden in the details. This publication aims to shed light on some of those details and also larger challenges that have made it impossible to agree on lasting solutions for the respective conflicts in Cyprus and Moldova despite the numerous years of effort by the parties involved. In addition to providing individual accounts of the situation in Cyprus and Moldova, this book also addresses the two conflicts from a comparative perspective and offers a set of policy oriented recommendations.
