Paths to Peace

This chapter draws out the larger theoretical and policy implications of the argument. It explains the potential ways to extend the research, such as explicitly modeling third-party intervention and extending the analysis to civil wars. A coalition shift can assist in overtaking the obstacles to peace and thus allows the war to end. There are six implications of domestic coalition shift theory, ranging from narrow observations about bargaining models of war to broad ramifications about any major policy change. Policy recommendations are classified by obstacles to peace, with final categories concerned with coalitional dynamics and the strategic interaction process. These obstacles include the preference obstacle, information obstacle, and entrapment obstacle. Analysis about coalitional dynamics provides some lessons about coalition-making tactics in the process of ending war.
