Abstract [en]

Some conflicts freeze after the parties sign a ceasefire agreement. Technically the parties are still at war although the violence rarely reaches a high scale level. This study specifically focuses on the relation between ceasefire agreements and the quality of peace and asks the question How do ceasefires affect the quality of peace in frozen conflicts?. Building on the previous works on ceasefire agreements and the quality of peace respectively, this thesis argues that the stronger and the more detailed the provisions contained in the agreement, the better the quality of peace will be. Using a structured focused comparison, the suggested hypothesis is tested on the conflict between North and South Korea and the conflict over Nagorno Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Findings show that the comprehensiveness of the ceasefire has a limited effect on the quality of peace. The more detailed provisions facilitate cooperation and dialogue between the parties but the political will of the involved governments and the active commitment of third parties may compensate for the lack of detailed measures in the ceasefire.
