Vol 13, No 1 (2018)

This issue contains five articles, the first two of which constitute a mini-symposium of papers on postwar governance in response to the World Bank Development Report 2017 on Governance and the Law. Patricia Justino notes that even in war there are forms of governance and that these frequently influence feasible forms of postwar governance. Anke Hoeffler makes the case that in the security and violence debate scholars, policymakers, and other interested parties should look beyond collective violence and also begin to address interpersonal violence. In the first of three stand-alone articles, Jamie Levin examines the European origins, later effectively abandoned, of the Israeli-Palestinian economic union. In examining decentralization and learning during warfare, Garrett Wood provides, in the second article, a cautionary tale in regard to the rationalist approach to bargaining theory. Finally, Atin Basuchoudhary and Laura Razzolini examine conditions of rebel group coordination or splintering.
