By Richard Hil, published 8/7/2011

Anywhere you care to look in the world there is the potential for violent conflict and a need for peace but not peace research: at least in Australia

plantagenet,
one way of reducing conflict is to stop forcing so much academic nonsense down our throats at great expense to us. Haven't you noticed that when people have it reasonably good there is no conflict ? Conflict only starts when others dictate to you & vice versa.

I agree with you exactly 'individual' and am not pushing tertiary education.

I was writing in relation to the author's article...

BTW while you may claim we're all individuals - I'm not.

Conflict resolution seems pretty good to me, but itís just a start. What about the causes of conflict, and preventing them? When people have it good, it often means those who arenít having it so good are simply simmering and not being heard, just waiting to be violent. The Ďstartí can even go deeper, and look at what it is in people that makes them choose to engage in conflict. I would hope that understanding such issues with some academic focus would be a contribution to help our world along the way to peace.
