Syria: the strategy of ceasefires

Armenak Tokmajyan, writer and research associate looks at how ceasefires can be used to try and break the deadlock in Syria.

"This article does not claim to find the solution for the Syrian crisis, but it provides some empirical and analytical data to illustrate the benefits that the civilian population and the government would gain if these ceasefires were to become more coherent and fair localized agreements," Tokmajyan states.
