    Peace processes are defined as the series of actions that lead up to the resolution of conflict and the negotiation and signing of a peace accord, as well as the series of actions that implement and consolidate the agreement afterward. A critical distinction is made between political and social peace processes and the series of actions that address these different types are outlined and discussed. The tension that can exist between them is emphasized and reasons are given to explain why peace processes can be so fragile.
