Democracy and Deep-Rooted Conflict: Options for Negotiators

Keywords: Post-conflict reconstruction – Negotiating – Policy-making

This handbook attempts to provide negotiators and policy-makers with detailed information on options for building democracy in post-conflict societies. The Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) has brought together international experts, both academics and practitioners, in many fields – from negotiation techniques to power-sharing formulas, from questions of federalism and autonomy to electoral systems and parliaments – to provide practical, policy-relevant advice. The handbook draws on the experience of peace settlements and democracy building from places such as Bosnia, Fiji, Northern Ireland and South Africa to illustrate the many, often unrecognized, options that negotiators can draw upon when attempting to build a nascent democracy.
