Mitchell principles are the following six rules agreed by both British and Irish governments.
To democratic and exclusively peaceful means of resolving political issues
To the total disarmament of all paramilitary organisations
To agree that such disarmament must be verifiable to the satisfaction of an independent commission
To renounce for themselves, and to oppose any effort by others, to use force, or threaten to use force, to influence the course or the outcome of all-party negotiations
To agree to abide by the terms of any agreement reached in all-party negotiations and to resort to democratic and exclusively peaceful methods in trying to alter any aspect of that outcome with which they may disagree
To urge that "punishment" killings and beatings stop and to take effective steps to prevent such actions
