Methods of Third-Party Intervention

Handbook Article

Reviews various forms of third-party intervention (e.g. conciliation, consultation, mediation, power mediation, arbitration and peacekeeping), focusing on mediation. Using a basic contingency model, the author outlines which third-party role may be most successful in which context. Critical issues are introduced, including: culture, power asymmetries, biases, timing, effectiveness, coordination and the ethics of intervention. (updated and revised for 2011 print edition)
