    Abstract This thematic paper examines the conditions under which preventive diplomacy has been effective in helping to shift the calculus of key actors to resolve conflict through peaceful means rather than violence. It focuses on recent cases where the potential for escalation was acute as well as lessons from a broader range of settings. The paper draws on the academic literature in this field but, given the dearth of empirical research on recent diplomatic prevention efforts, it is based heavily on policy-oriented papers, internal UN assessments, expert interviews, and the authors’ own experiences as practitioners.
