Thesis Title: Conflict Resolution Processess towards Ending Ethno-nationalist Conflicts in Northern Ireland and Turkey
Aytac Kadioglu focuses on non-violent, political resolution efforts in order to end violent conflicts with a particular attention to ethno-nationalist groups. He has two case studies; Northern Ireland and Turkey. The aim of his research is to explore whether conflict resolution processes have an influence to resolve disputes between states and sub-state armed groups in a peaceful meaning.
Aytac's study explores political, non-violent resolution efforts in the Northern Irish conflict in the UK and the Kurdish conflict in Turkey. The conflict resolution efforts of states, sub-state armed groups and independent third parties are assessed to understand official and unofficial peacemaking attempts for ending violent conflicts. In this context, his study specifically explores conflict resolution as a process during the term of violence. Not only official negotiations and mediation, but also resolution attempts of other unofficial groups and actors which help political agents establish peace in a specific region are examined in terms of the troubles of the states with the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
