36 Although natural resources played a key role in the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), peace agreements have little to do with natural resource management: the Lusaka Agreement of 10 July 1999, the agreements between the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda of 30 July 2002 and Uganda on 6 September 2002 , and the comprehensive and inclusive transition agreement in the Democratic Republic of Congo of 17 December 2002 and the transitional agreements in the Democratic Republic of Congo of 17 December 2002 on non-exclusive military and military policy issues, while they deal only vaguely with economic issues. 22The stable and lasting peace agreement of 29 December 1996 included 13 individual agreements, one of which was the agreement on the economic and social aspects of the agricultural situation of 6 May 1996. Economic and social inequalities are at the root of the conflict in Guatemala. An ambitious programme for state-building aimed to reduce inequality and increase participation and transparency. The agreement stresses that social participation is an instrument to eliminate economic, social and political polarization (Article 2). The obligation to address inequalities has been imposed on the state, which is expected to play a leading role in the reform of health, education, employment, social security and housing (Art.16, art.19-26). Land reform has also been essential, including provisions to combat resource concentration through a new land access regulation and land acquisition financing mechanisms (Article 34). The agreement also included provisions for the modernization of public services, including tax policy reform (s.45-51). Famous examples are the contract of Shackamaxon, also known as the Peace Treaty Signed after St.
Tammany Welcomed William Penn with Peace – Friendship, Founding Pennsylvania. William Penn and St. Tammany have agreed to live in peace as long as water flows into rivers and streams and as long as the stars and moon persist.      Treaty of Paris (1815), signed after Napoleon`s defeat in the Battle of Waterloo, and the Treaty of Versailles, to officially end the First World War between Germany and the Allies. Despite popular belief, the war did not end until the Allies made peace with the Ottoman Empire with the Ottoman Empire in 1919. Often, a peace treaty is also not used to end a civil war, especially in the event of a failure of secession, because it involves mutual recognition of the state. In cases such as the American Civil War, it usually ends when the army of losers surrenders and its government collapses. On the other hand, a successful secession or declaration of independence is often formalized by a peace treaty. 10The key question in the relationship between the peace agreement and peace-building is whether the nature, content and quality of peace agreements promote lasting peace-building. Peacebuilding is part of the continuum of conflict management strategies.
It was preceded by a mediation process, a peace agreement and humanitarian aid or peacekeeping operations. Since peace-building occurs at a later stage of conflict management, it inherits deficiencies from earlier phases. Peacebuilding is therefore moving backwards to implement what had been previously agreed, while making progress to avoid future armed conflicts. Participation in a peace process and the signing of a peace agreement are, by definition, bilateral (or multilateral) acts. On the other hand, the pursuit of the struggle for military victory is one-sided, as it does not require the agreement of the other. Peace negotiations requiring political compromises, terrorist labels and the rejection of the political character of opponents generally block such initiatives. Rebuilding the social fabric between states or within a state can be extremely difficult. In some cases, national or national construction may seem impossible.
