This chapter assesses the overall contribution of this volume to the understanding of the role of recognition processes in resolving internal conflicts between states and armed non-state actors. It finds that this volume demonstrates that recognition among actors in conflict is an important part of resolving conflicts, but that actors and audiences for recognition acts face important political, psychological and legal limits to their use of this mechanism to further the cause of peace. The chapter concludes that emerging trends such as the fraying of the liberal international order, the return of great power competition and the rise of deliberate disinformation campaigns online may make it even more difficult to use recognition to resolve conflicts in years to come.
