Description:

Zenja Basagi explores the history of  Burundi, and reasons for the conflict. Her dissertation focuses on the reform and the changes taking place in the UN concomitant with the major events in Burundi; at the time when Burundi was trying to achieve durable solutions for peace, the UN was also trying to redefine itself. The paper will thus examine the extent of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations' (DPKO) and the overall UN’s support in establishing, maintaining and consolidating peace in Burundi with the emphasis on the period 1993 - 2007.

Description:

Drazen Pehar looks specifically at the use of ambiguities in peace agreements. Pehar explains why ambiguities are so often used and why diplomats and others involved in international relations may think it best to eliminate ambiguities from peace agreements altogether. He goes on to demonstrate, however, with numerous examples, that while ambiguities have led to a continuation or re-starting of hostilities in some cases, in many other cases they have provided the only bridge between conflicting parties and allowed for a cessation of violence. Pehar presents and discusses in detail pros and cons for the use of ambiguities in peace agreements, providing a number of guidelines and considerations for their successful use.
