Mediation International Crises is the first comprehensive study of such a mechanism, which was increasingly used in the 20th century: third-party mediation. This important research aims to determine whether third-party mediation is an effective way to mitigate or manage the turbulent and violent consequences of crises. The authors examine three approaches to mediation: moderating communication between the parties, formulating possible agreements, and manipulating the parties through sanctions or rewards. This new book shows how international crises are dangerous episodes that can be destabilizing not only for the actors directly involved, but also for the entire international system. The book begins with an in-depth discussion of the theoretical literature on mediation, paying particular attention to the important distinction between crisis management and conflict resolution. Subsequently, the authors provide empirical analyses of mediation cases in the international crises of the 20th century, which are supplemented by data from simulated negotiation contexts with human subjects. Researchers and policymakers recognize the primacy of crises as defining moments in international relations and are increasingly concerned about identifying mechanisms for crisis prevention, management and resolution.
