It is usually neighbouring communities or countries that come into conflict with each other. It happens when there is a perception of one is exploiting the other. Movements of peoples, both internal and cross border, have often put communities in conflict. This problem has
accentuated in the West since 2015. Sociologists say that societies with a high proportion of young people may face tensions if their energies are not guided in a positive direction. It happened in the colonial period and is recurring the Middle East and other areas these days. Growing economic inequality is another reason for tension as well as religious or racial hatred. Every citizen can do something to bring communities in conflict at the local level together and help them to look forward to a shared future. An “intelligent evaluation” of even a world problem can win global attention and contribute to the cause of peace.
