This article emphasizes the continuities rather than the discontinuities between war and peace, suggesting that warfare as well as the making of peace can be seen as parts of a continuous bargaining process. It presents an analytical framework for past-war bargaining proceeding from four challenges which affect the balance between cooperation and conflict: (1) the timing of war endings; (2) leadership and domestic public opinion; (3) the (re)framing of enemy images and (re)construction of relations; and (4) intervention by third parties. The case of Israeli-Palestinian bargaining after the 1993 Declaration of Principles is used to illustrate the complexities and challenges of transitions from war to peace.
