18. Elizabeth Wood Reading for week 4 Making Robust Settlements to Civil War: Invisible Stakes and distributional compromises This article is about how civil war settlements sometimes fail and sometimes succeed. Wood shows how her model of a civil war settlement and how it is optimal for building a country. She says that there are many types of civil wars and there are certain aspects of civil wars that bring about long lasting peace. The types of agreements they are resolved with are either self-enforcing, third party interventions, and where one party surrenders in war. She states that the negotiations that foster peace are the ones that share power and resources equally and it is increased with third party negotiations. She states that it must be in best interest of both parties for a post civil war civilization to be robust. She specifically focuses on three concepts, divisible stakes, robust settlements and invisible stakes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
