Obstacles and opportunities for dialogue and cooperation in protracted conflict

The Corridors Proceedings Vol. I "Obstacles and Opportunities for Dialogue and Cooperation in Protracted Conflicts" (ISBN 978-3-945232-01-9) provides the reader with fresh research from young scholars and established researchers and practitioners. All of the papers offer a different perspective on the diverse set of obstacles and opportunities for dialogue and cooperation in protracted conflicts. Most importantly, the contributions add the local perspective to a debate that is dominated by Western scholars who sometimes lack in-depth knowledge of the different cases. This provides us with a more nuanced picture of the specific structures, elements, dynamics and consequences of protracted conflicts. Meanwhile, the authors also identified opportunities to (re-)establish dialogue and cooperation in respect of the conflict divide.
