Settlement Handbook

The CIPS Settlement Handbook on Settlement Options is a freely available online resource for conflict settlement practitioners and researchers. It provides systematic analysis of the various options and approaches available to conflict parties across a wide range of conflict issues that can arise in peace negotiations.

Each paper in this online handbook addresses a different conflict issue, such as ceasefires and military stabilisation, territorial settlements, detainees, or humanitarian access and assistance. They have been authored by contributors from our network of subject experts and will continue to be updated and refined by reference to new settlement practice.
