Scraps Of Paper Agreements And The Durability Of Peace

What determines, after the war, whether peace continues or fighting continues, and what can be done to promote lasting peace? On the basis of the theories of cooperation, I affirm that belligerents can overcome obstacles to peace by implementing measures that modify incentives, reducing uncertainty about intentions and managing accidents. A counter-argument suggests that the agreements are epiphenomemic and only reflect the underlying likelihood of a resumption of war. I test assumptions about the sustainability of peace using hazard analyses. Controlling the factors (including the determination of victory, the cost of war, relative capabilities and others) that influence the fundamental prospects for peace, seems to me that stronger agreements improve the sustainability of peace. In particular, measures such as the creation of demilitarized zones, explicit third-party guarantees, peacekeeping operations and joint dispute resolution commissions have effects on the duration of peace. Agreements are not just pieces of paper; On the contrary, it is their content that is important in the construction of peace that endures.
