Unfortunately, peace processes are often accompanied by acts of political violence. These aspects of political violence can prove to be detrimental and thwarting to negotiations aiming towards conflict resolution and peace.

An understanding of threats to the peace process and the recognition of the role of political violence in peace processes is critical in efforts to avoid future fatal conflicts.
