There has been much talk about conflict resolution and peace in the Middle East to date. However, when Middle East peace is mentioned, the most prominent conflict resolution or peace proposal is often the 1648 Peace of Westphalia and the order it created. In this context, research has been conducted on the possibility of a Westphalian-style peace in the Middle East. The latest work in this vein is the book titled Towards a Westphalia for the Middle East.
