These negotiations are usually handled quietly, informally, behind closed doors, often without an interpreter, usually without a speciﬁc time constraint on the negotiation process and usually away from the world’s press. 48 The multilateral framework is altogether a very different experience. Apart from the fact that there are hosts of ofﬁcial delegates, interpreters, concerned non-governmental bodies and individuals and the intense attention of the press, the main differences of the multilateral framework relate to a number of key features, namely: multilateral gatherings have speciﬁc and short time-frames; trying to negotiate consensual, practical outcomes from such gatherings is virtually impossible, and multilateral negotiations almost never produce binding draft treaties which incorporate stated obligations and commitments backed with legally enforceable sanctions.

R. Mitchell, it seems to be the case with international attempts at conﬂict resolution, particularly when concerned with protracted and deep-rooted conﬂict, that a highly unstructured and/or unrelated format of activities is employed, when viewed from a methodological and theoretical standpoint. Such activities that exist are designed to minimize antagonisms, break down barriers and create trust, before moving on to the actualities of the conﬂict itself. In this environment, ambiguities remain, and connections between conditions, structures and processes, attitudes and behaviour may continue to be only implied.
