I am researching how facilitative mediation contributes to progress in peace negotiations to end civil wars. By focusing on how mediation helps to overcome impasses in peace negotiations, I aim to further our theoretical understanding of how facilitative mediation works. I apply process tracing techniques to study the impasses in the UN-mediated El Salvador peace negotiations of 1989-1992.
