The Price of Peace: Incentives and International Conflict Prevention

Incentives and International Conflict Prevention

(Rowman & Littlefield, 1997). Edited by David Cortright.

As part of its groundbreaking effort to develop a comprehensive framework for security and conflict prevention in the post-cold war era, the Carnegie Commission for Preventing Deadly Conflict commissioned a series of case studies on incentives and international cooperation that are the focus of this new book.

Edited by David Cortright, director of policy studies at Notre Dame's Kroc Institute, The Price of Peace draws upon leading experts in the fields of nuclear nonproliferation, regional dispute resolution, diplomacy, and international finance to present a systematic analysis of the role of inducements in preventing conflict. The case studies examine the use of incentives in a range of circumstances, and introductory and overview chapters by Cortright provide a unique analysis of the use of incentives in international diplomacy.

The Price of Peace will be of interest not only to policymakers and scholars, but also the general public.
