Strategy Paper about Conflict Resolution: How will the ongoing armed conflict between China and Taiwan be resolved?
- The paper should be 18 pages, double-spaced, 12-point typed, pages in length, excluding bibliography and maps.
- Please think of the exercise as being to write a persuasive argument about how the conflict could be moved in a less destructive direction and/or how violence might be reduced in the long-term i.e. de- escalation in the conflict cycle terms. Overall, I am looking for your best argument (backed by persuasive evidence indicating why this is feasible) as to how to proceed.
- This conflict has recently witnessed a peace agreement(such as consensus in 1992) of some sort but the incompatibilities between the parties have not yet been fully resolved, assess the contents of the peace agreement, highlight its main strengths and weaknesses, ask why it failed to get fully implemented, and propose ways of overcoming those obstacles this time around.
- It is sometimes useful to think of proposals in terms of short-term (next six months), medium-term (2-5 years) and long-term (10 years) measures.
I also attached a document with the backgrounds and history about the conflict between China and Taiwan.
Please pay attention to talk about how the conflict can be resolved rather than the basic background.
