Journalists and Writers Foundation

New and recurrent conflicts continue to plague many communities across the world. International and domestic conflicts all around the world continue to cause tremendous suffering, damage communities and infrastructure, and hamper economic and social development. The ongoing costs of the threat or outbreak of violent conflict have enormous long-term social, psychological, political, economic, and environmental costs. Causes of conflicts and factors contributing to their escalation are often varied and complex. Historical grievances, discrimination, marginalization along ethnic, gender, religious, cultural and racial divisions, poverty, underdevelopment, competition over natural resources, authoritarian and undemocratic regimes, and inability to resolve differences constructively are among the factors that often lead to violent conflicts.

Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding are fast growing fields. A wide range of actors, such as governments, international and regional governmental organizations, local and international civil society organizations, women, religious leaders, and conflict resolution specialists are undertaking initiatives to find constructive ways to respond to conflicts and foster sustainable peace.
