Example text

In 1960, Ecuadorian leaders renounced the agreement and rejected the borders established by the treaty; Peru refused to recognize this move by Ecuador and dismissed Ecuador’s calls for a renegotiation of the border. The guarantor states of the Rio Protocol agreed with Peru that the agreement between the states had been a fair one and was to continue to serve as the basis for the border between Ecuador and Peru. As the crisis emerged in 1981, then, the Rio Protocol was still internationally recognized as valid and legitimate, and the land sought by Ecuador in the border region was considered to be under the sovereign control of Peru.

Aggregate power): Peru’s territory is more than four times the size of its northern neighbor, it has about double the population of Ecuador, it has a larger governmental budget than Ecuador, and it spends more annually on defense than does Ecuador. This historical case was considered to be an appropriate basis for a test of mediation dynamics because it was, in fact, mediated, and because it shares characteristics with many ICB cases. It involved a territorial dispute between two contiguous actors, it exhibited a level of violence characterized by minor clashes between actors, it demonstrated the classic characteristics of power asymmetry between crisis actors, and it occurred within an on-going protracted conflict (see Wilkenfeld and Brecher 2000).

Therefore, these data are culled from the most diverse set of variations of our experimental research design. For that reason, it will be important to note the parameters of each variation of this research design, and we discuss these in more detail in Chapters 4 through 6. Each of these chapters also contains added details regarding the data used specifically for the analyses contained within these chapters. In addition, since we have not yet presented an in-depth discussion of the three central variables in our theoretical framework (mediation style, 32 Multi-method exploration of mediation power relations, and zone of agreement), we leave the more detailed discussion of our experimental methodology as it relates to these variables to Chapters 4 through 6.
