Peace negotiations often fail due to an increasing canon of international law hindering extensive amnesty for conflict parties. As conflict parties have to expect criminal prosecution in following successful peace negotiations, they tend to be less willing to agree to compromises and stop violent confrontations.
The Law Peace Practice Group is the first international network dealing with the gap between reaching a peace agreement that ends violence and a just treatment of conflict parties after negotiations. Experienced mediators and experts on transitional justice share lessons learned, use their networks and offer institutional support to conflict parties and mediators in diverse contexts.
Since 2015, the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports the Law and Peace Practice Group.
