This chapter discusses efforts to end conflicts funded through natural resources, focusing on military interventions, economic sanctions, and revenue sharing agreements between belligerents. Along with greater information on conflict commodity trafficking collected by UN expert panels, these initiatives have resulted in some important successes. Yet these conflict termination strategies have also been criticised for interpreting war as driven by economic motives, for ambivalent impacts on local livelihoods, and for limiting peace to policing belligerents rather than broadly addressing the causes of conflict.
