Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly discusses the lessons learnt for conflict prevention. It distinguishes three different sorts of lessons learnt: (i) concept-related lessons, (ii) means-related lessons, and (iii) organisational lessons. The concept-related lessons take the actual conflict as their point of departure. They concentrate on the core of the conflict and on the scope of action of international actors. The means-related lessons focus mainly on the means utilised. These include the specific nature of the means available, and how they should be applied by international actors in a conflict region. The organisational lessons concentrate more on technical and administrative issues that ensure the prompt and effective use of conflict prevention tools. Taking these lessons into account may help to reduce the dynamics of a conflict or minimise the probability that a conflict erupts into a crisis or war.

Keywords: concept-related lessons; conflict prevention; international actors; means-related lessons; organisational lessons
