Description
Abstract
The central focus of this paper is to suggest that understanding how third-party mediation works and does not work in managing and resolving international conflicts is crucial given the destructive nature of today's international conflicts. Specifically, the first chapter of this analysis will focus on explaining the various roles and functions involved in third-party mediation; chapter two will discuss the contingent effectiveness of particular tactics in certain conflict settings. Chapter three will focus on conducting an exploration of the present and potential resources and capabilities of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and his staff in mediating international conflict. Lastly, chapter four will discuss the implications of the first three chapters combined with some concluding remarks.
