Most of what has been written on war to peace transitions focuses on conflict resolution techniques. The outcome of a peace process is considered a function of the conflict resolution techniques employed. The significance of the conflict situation to which the techniques are applied either are not systematically taken into account, downplayed, or even completely neglected. There are two other strands of the literature that question this virtually exclusive focus on conflict resolution techniques: one set focuses on conflict situations; the other explores the fit between conflict resolution techniques and conflict situations.
