Beyond disasters: creating opportunities for peace
Renner, Michael; Chafe, Zoe
This report examines the potential for peacemaking following disasters in conflict-affected regions. Three examples are considered: the separatist uprising in Indonesia's Aceh Province, the civil war in Sri Lanka and the territorial dispute between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. The first two examples are explored following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The final example is considered following the 2005 earthquake in Kashmir.
