Chapter Summary

The Falklands case provides much fodder for war-stopping analysis. This chapter presents an overview of the war, unraveling the trajectory and background of the dispute since its inception. It recounts the major events of the war, showing how closely the military and diplomatic initiatives were interwoven, the former greatly shaping the latter. The chapter also details war-stopping techniques: mediation by a major superpower, the United States; second, mediation proffered by a Latin American nation, Peru; and third, intervention by an international organization, the United Nations. Finally, the case study concludes with an appraisal of these techniques and an assessment of whether the outcome of this war was inevitable, and it suggests an alternative war-stopping strategy that might have succeeded.
