The article offers a look at some of the Bilateral Peace Treaties' (BPT) practical implications for enhancing bilateral conflict resolution mechanisms in Great Britain. It explores the possible administrative changes to implement fully the written agreements between two states or sovereigns. For a government to honor its BPT obligations, the author stresses that it need to give specific attention to developing conflict resolution training for its staff. It has been noted that in general little is done to institutionalize the bilateral conflict resolution, a matter that is very significant in any activities of all departments of foreign affairs.
