We are very happy to announce that the article "Between the Bombs: Exploring Partial Ceasefires in the Syrian Civil War, 2011-2017" by project leader Prof. Isak Svensson and Dogukan Karakus (University of Goettingen) has been published online in the journal Terrorism and Political Violence.

The authors examine a new set of 106 local ceasefire arrangements struck between 2011-2017 in the Syrian civil war and find that the presence of insider mediators and confidence-building measures between belligerents are positively associated with successful ceasefire arrangements.
