About this book

A critical study of incentives commonly used to induce non-state armed groups to engage in peace negotiations. Offers a closer analysis of these incentives, which offer such groups a place or a stake in governance, suggesting that not only are they frequently ineffective, but that they can have unintended and dangerous side effects.

Reviews

'A thoughtful and well-designed study of a vitally important issue in building a peace after civil war. Should armed groups be included in the postwar settlement and share power? Chandra Sriram explores this challenging question with in-depth case studies of the conflicts in Sri Lanka, Sudan and Colombia. Every specialist and every practitioner would benefit from reading her cautionary words.' - Michael W. Doyle, Harold Brown Professor of International Affairs, Law and Political Science, Columbia University, and co-author of Making War and Building Peace
