They acknowledge the fact that they cannot address every theory that is out there, nor than they truly examine any of the theories in great detail in the space that they have afforded them. Instead of attempting this they examine the extant theories with regards to two broad schools of thought. First they deal with the school of thought that sees the ethnic conflicts as a rational conflict with economic and security elements to them. The second school of thought that they address is the more psychological and cultural school of thought which deals more social identity based explanations of ethnic conflict. In their examining of both these schools of thought Cordell and Wolff bring in elements of international relations theory.
The world is in which we are living is entering into a new phase, and intellectuals have not been hesitant to proliferate visions of what it will be ‘End of History’, the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great division among the man kind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural identities as was formulated earlier by great philosopher Huntington in his theory ‘Clash of Civilization’ Which seems to be relevant after 9/11 .Also in 1793, as R.R Palmar put it, the wars of the kings were over, and the wars of people begin.

The ASEAN efforts toward peace Peace has always been among humanity's supreme values, especially essential elements of cooperation.

The post-cold war period invited many scholars to question, whether there is a dominant theory or hegemon that dictates the structure of the international relations. Lake claimed that, there is no dominant hegemon, international relations encompasses a diversity of theories that mould the international system (1987:127).
