Abstract [en]

How can intractable conflicts become negotiable after decades of bloodshed and disagreement? The question is addressed using two lenses - one conceptual, the so-called conflict transformation approach set out in the research literature, and one empirical, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over Jerusalem. The article discusses turning points in the transformation of Jerusalem, from an intractable dispute to an intensively negotiated issue with the contours of a possible agreement emerging. It examines how far the conflict transformation approach helps to explain this critical development, as well as how Jerusalem points to areas in need of further development. The conflict over Jerusalem has become tractable through profound structural and relational change. However, this change is not necessarily permanent. A useful approach to conflict transformation needs to illuminate underlying causes better, and be able to explain relapses into intractability.
