Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of the institutional arrangements that were made in the settlement of the South Tyrol conflict. It demonstrates that the complexity of the arrangements for South Tyrol is not very well captured by existing theories of conflict resolution, as it involves, contrary to many traditional assumptions, techniques and mechanisms from a range of different approaches traditionally pitted against each other as incompatible. A chronological account of the development of the arrangements now in place for South Tyrol shows that these arrangements emerged gradually in a process of dynamic evolution of the status of South Tyrol within the Italian state. The main features that characterize South Tyrol as an example of what the author calls an emerging practice of ?complex power sharing? is then used to establish that South Tyrol is by no means unique as a case of conflict resolution practice eclipsing existing conflict resolution theories.

Keywords: complex power sharing; conflict resolution theories; institutional arrangements; Italian state; South Tyrol
