Take swift and decisive action, including military action.” (UN). Preventing can contain two terms, preventing a genocide to not happen and prevent further destruction and casualties while a genocide is going on. And, genocide most probably happens at the time of war, so to stop that people need to understand its roots such as hatred, intolerance, racism, discrimination and so on. After understanding the early warning and root causes of genocide the convention can mandate to prevent the genocide. It can be done through the UN Peace Keepers, preventive diplomacy or putting pressure on the government in order to change the decisions of political leaders, through humanitarian interventions and human rights.
Introduction: Conflict prevention is dependent on human decision-making and through creative educational planning, constructive alternatives are available. Educational planners have the responsibility to put in place the infrastructure for tomorrow’s decision-makers, the students; and to encourage decision-makers of today to create solutions. As current conflict are primarily intra-state, visionary education can successfully help local communities and nations to resolve root causes before inter-group disagreements erupt. Prevention through educational planning contributes to sustainable economic development and is an element of wise political decision-making. Conflict prevention is not only morally sound, it is cost effective.
Conflict prevention is a concept that supports a number of strategic policy actions that seek to prevent an outbreak, escalation or return to violent conflict. Preventive diplomacy and preventive military deployment are the two major areas of purposeful action and in each category there are variations. Preventive diplomacy can include the dispatch of high level envoys from a regional or international organization or state to a conflict zone in order to assist the conflict parties to change perceptions and take de-escalatory actions in the conflict they are engaged in. States and IOs are not the only actors; NGOs, religious organizations and eminent persons acting on their own but in coordination with others can have the same purpose. Regardless
Understanding effective conflict resolution is essential to better deal with conflict. The four styles of managing conflict are: 1. Avoidance- Avoidance is when an individual avoids a situation because it is uncomfortable. Avoiding the conflict is not recommended because the problem can become worse by not addressing it. (Finkelman, 2016, pg.
The use of preventive Diplomacy itself, or diplomacy, in general, is not a realist approach. However, the invasion of Kuwait afterward shows the opposite. The Gulf crisis, for some, can be seen from different angles (depending on what stage). From a realist point of view, there are several indications showing realism as a source of confusion and conflict. For instance, the personality of the political leader Saddam Hussein, in addition to the primacy of the state, state interests, and the distribution of power (military, economic, land, and demographic).
Both preventative Diplomacy and conflict prevention are the actions geared towards stopping armed conflicts before they escalate to widespread violence. Preventative Diplomacy aims at early detection of any development that may result in the eruption of violence. The main objective is to prevent any outbreak or the further escalation of violence in order to try and save lives. A definition given by Wikipedia states that, preventative Diplomacy are the actions to prevent disputes from arising between parties or to prevent existing disputes from escalating into conflicts and also to limit the spread of conflicts in case they occur. Michael S. Lund in his book ‘Preventing Violent Conflict: A strategy for preventative Diplomacy ‘, defines
Traditionally, prevention campaigns present fear appeals to focus attention on negative consequences of a detrimental practice rather than promoting the desirability of a positive alternative. This approach is most potent in cases where harmful outcomes are genuinely threatening or positive products are insufficiently
Efforts to contain the spread of infectious diseases by restricting individual choices through isolation and quarantine of infected individuals to safeguard the community’s welfare demands justification. Furthermore, in the situation of limited resources for promotion and prevention activities, putting resources into untested interventions may result in depriving resources from other more effective programs. Awareness and accountability has definitely arises conflict between individuals and community
Another way of prevention is by the use of protective mechanisms like condoms when engaging in sexual intercourse. Since it is a sexually transmitted disease, abstinence is the key to stay safe from the infection. Suspected cases however should be reported to qualified health care personnel as soon as possible so as to eliminate the pathogen from the bloodstream.
2.3 Conflict Styles People approach conflict in a variety of ways. To explain this theory, Blake and Mouton created a table that explained the five types of conflict style; avoidance, accommodating, competing, collaborating and compromising (CPP Global, 2008). Understanding your employee’s conflict style will better prepare you when organizing your conflict resolution strategy. • Avoidance- “I lose, you lose” Employee declines to engage in conflict at all, leaving unresolved issues (CPP Global, 2008). • Accommodation- “I lose, you win” Employee gives into others to quickly resolve conflict; keeping a peaceful environment.
