Chapter
Part of the New Security Challenges Series book series

Abstract

Institutional efforts at prevention are becoming increasingly viable paths to a sustainable peace. In particular, recent studies acknowledge that regional organizations, due to their inherent attachment to the local reality, the presence of personal and professional contacts, background knowledge of the territory, experience and some resources, including personnel, are able, to a large extent, to perform the task of prevention and help to project regional stability better than other actors.1
