On Peacemaking: A Decade of Reflections 2006-2015 draws together some of the most noteworthy papers written by mediators, thinkers and peace process actors for the Oslo Forum retreats. These papers were originally developed exclusively for participants in the Forum and they are being made available to a wider audience for the first time.
The papers cover a wide range of topics from the role of the United Nations in mediation, to the complex interplay between peace and justice, the inclusion of women and civil society in peacemaking, the normative framework in which mediators operate, and the challenges of the implementation phase. They address some of the thorniest issues mediators face in designing peace processes and pursuing peaceful settlements to armed conflicts. The compendium provides a collage of reflections from across the Oslo Forum network and unique insights into peacemaking.
