Abstract

The article analyzes the dynamics behind Tajikistan‟s civil war (1992–1997) and unearths some important geopolitical similarities between that conflict and the ongoing civil war in Syria. The author suggests several key lessons from the peace process that had effectively ended the war in Tajikistan to be considered for purposes of conflict resolution and reconciliation in Syria. These parallels and lessons are largely overlooked in existing conflict resolution literature.
