About Peace Talks in Focus:
Negotiating peace is a process that is as arduous as it is full of hope. Having access to the accurate information provided in Escola de Cultura de Pau’s yearbook allows us to analyse the various negotiation processes under way around the globe and to encourage the work of all those interested in the peaceful transformation of conflicts and in the construction of alternatives that are ethically responsible and economically sustainable for people and the planet as a whole.
Director of Gernika Gogoratuz Peace Research Center
The rise in conflicts in today’s world is seldom met with the appropriate appetite by leading political actors to intervene and ensure that a peaceful solution is found. This is why it’s important that peace practitioners share in their learnings from a wide range of peace processes in order to identify trends and learn from one another so that they can continue to successfully promote dialogue and peace talks, but also to design better processes that can lead to better, more longer lasting peace agreements.

Peace Talks in Focus is an essential source for anyone interested in making sense of how peace and negotiation processes are working around the world. It is a global compendium with narratives of how agreements were reached, complementing other comparative work being done on peace agreements. By looking across all of the world’s dynamic and its more stuck processes, with its closely-detailed case studies, Escola de Cultura de Pau is able to highlight important emerging international and regional trends. If you want to learn more about how wars are currently being brought to an end, you need to study how people are building peace. I recommend this volume.
