This initiative offers settlement options to conflict parties and those supporting them in the search for peace.
A recent contribution to Opinio Juris considered what a possible settlement for Ukraine might look like. The aim was to show that a relatively condensed settlement could be possible, despite the ever more complex nature of the situation in Ukraine. That contribution also attempted to demonstrate a few ideas on how one might address some of the more difficult issue areas in a potential settlement.
Any specific settlement proposal will of necessity reflect the relative configuration of the sides on the battlefield and in the wider political arena. It is not possible to predict what the situation will be by the time the sides reach an eventual settlement. However, the parties and the mediators might find it helpful to see a fairly broad range of options for addressing each of the key issue areas they face when constructing the actual settlement. Here we offer settlement options on most of the core issues for the sides.
