Among his 18 books to date are Ethnic Conflict: A Global Perspective (Oxford University Press 2007) and Conflict Management in Divided Societies (Routledge 2011, with Christalla Yakinthou).

The first half of this talk offers an overview of the different options that can be used to design negotiation processes in relation to process design and the role of mediators, purpose, format, participation, agenda, timetable, and the methods for reaching consensus. The second part focuses on some of the likely problems that mediators might encounter along the way and how to deal with them constructively and swiftly so that mediators can demonstrate result and retain their relevance in the peace process.
