n Institute for Security Studies Papers - Protecting civilians through peace agreements : challenges and lessons of the Darfur peace agreement

Volume 2007, Issue 138
  • ISSN : 1026-0404



In this paper, the author discusses the Darfur peace processes and examines whether they sufficiently provide, if at all, for protection of civilians. Through a general discussion of peace processes in Africa, but with particular focus on Darfur, the author responds to the question why some peace processes succeed and others don't and more particularly, why some peace processes create conditions for the effective protection of civilians whilst others do not. In part, the author suggests that how peace talks are managed, and in particular their foundation on effective security arrangements is key in this regard.
