International crises are dangerous episodes that can be destabilizing not only to the actors directly involved but also to the entire international system.Mediating International Crisesinvestigates the crisis management mechanism-mediation by a third party-to determine the effectiveness of mediation efforts in crisis negotiations. The book begins with a thorough discussion of the theoretical literature on mediation, with particular attention paid to the important distinction between crisis management and conflict resolution. The authors then provide empirical analyses of instances of mediation in 20th century international crises, which is supplemented with data derived from simulated negotiation settings with human subjects. This unique blending of case studies and empirical and experimental data allows the authors to gain greater insight into the processes involved in crisis mediation, and the unique outcomes that various types of mediation are likely to generate. There will also be adedicated website that makes further data available.
