RESUMEN
Business people and business communities in conflict zones are often considered to have not only interest in peace but also the political capacity to influence in conflict resolution. However, both the interests of business in peace and the assumption that business "always gets what it wants" are questionable as lessons from the Middle East peace process demonstrate. This ongoing research will theoretically engage with question of business, politics and peace process in a globalizing world and will introduce some empirical finding from the Middle East on the following questions: a. does business have a vested interest in peace?, b. can business organize to promote its interests?, c. what strategies are available to business groups in peace processes, d. what are the costs and benefits of political intervention? And, e. what is the capacity of business to influence peace processes?
