Overview

Zartman (international organization and conflict resolution, Johns Hopkins U.) selects six case of state collapse evaluates how missed opportunities for external intervention may have led to substantially improved outcomes. Analyzing situations in Lebanon in 1976-1984, Liberia in 1985-1998, Somalia in 1988-1993, Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) in 1991-1996, Yugoslavia in 1989-1988, and Haiti in 1991-1996, he attempts to identify times when interested third parties should have engaged in interventions ranging from encouraging dialogue meetings among civil society and political groups, mediated pursuit of negotiations, and condemnation of repressive actions by governments to diplomatic activity to facilitate changes in rulers and the sending of "peace-keeping" forces.
