By analysing the historical, economic and political context of our six case studies, this report sets out CORE’s understanding of the conflicts concerned. The main aim of this report is to provide background information, introduce the main conflict actors and their agendas and to compare conflict resolution and basic governance strategies applied to the cases of Bihar, Bosnia, Cyprus, Georgia, Kashmir and Northeast India. It also provides an overview of recent developments and their historic background rather than in-depth case studies. Hence, it is only a first approach to the topic to collect empirical information about the divergence of contexts, actors and strategies involved in conflict resolution.
Deliverable D.3.1 submitted May 2011 (M5) in fulfillment of requirements of the project Cultures of governance and conflict resolution in Europe and India (CORE) - Workpackage 3 Analysis of Policy.
