It summarizes key steps that the negotiating parties will need to take into consideration when finding agreements on a comprehensive and mandatory multi-stage structure as part of an inclusive peace process.The purpose of this paper is to understand the potential milestones and issues involved in the rapprochement and peace process that exist independently of day-to-day politics or tactical maneuvering motivated by domestic and external needs and the constraints of individual parties involved.
