Peace and Conflict Talk Series

The nature of Peace and Conflict has become a topic, a theme of great emergence in today's date. Majorly in the field of International Relations (IR), this key theme plays a very crucial role in the development of healthier relations with other countries. Through the identification and analysis of violence and non-violence among countries and states, "peace and conflict studies" seeks to achieve the state of a desirable peaceful human co-existence. It's main objective is to achieve peace through prevention, negotiation, de-escalation of conflicts by peaceful means such that victory of both the parties in the conflict is involved. This is in converse to military studies, in which violent means are used for satisfaction of the parties involved. A field which mainly studies on the sources of conflicts that have a probability of taking place, highly efficient for diplomats and other officials involved in the field of politics.
World War II in history clearly paves the way for such a theme to emerge in today's date. Understanding a country's next move be it in politics, economics, or even historically, etc. all can be efficiently developed by looking into this theme. The World War II in itself is a clear example to study the conflicts that emerged then between the major super powers of the world, which led to a cold war for a long period of nearly 45 years which was equally hazardous for the world peace and order. With the coming of UN (United Nations) and the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty, it served as a major platform for countries to avoid conflict and instead choose peaceful means i.e. through negotiations to achieve victory. Which ultimately led to an end of the cold war and a restoration in the stability of world peace.
However, talking about current scenarios, with the advancement in technology and humanitarian intervention, the world peace is always at the risk of an uncertain instability. As such, peace and conflict in itself is a broad theme which can be analysed by the following sub-themes:
• Humanitarian intervention and the threat to state sovereignty.
Since the cold war, states recognized the need for a stable international system in order to maintain peace and security in the increasingly integrating world. Considering the different state behaviours which threaten the world order today, the power of the states need to be limited in the anarchical international system. For this reason, states negotiate their state interests in the international organisations which compel states to follow certain international norms. However, has the power of international organisations exceeded that of the states? Can the decisions of powerful states who negotiate for their own interests be justified in sabotaging the state sovereignty? Has humanitarian intervention improved the life of the civilians or created disorder?

• Nuclear deals, economic sanctions, and the compromise on human rights.

• Power dynamics and conflict management in South Asia:
Countries constantly seek to preserve their power and increase their influence which would further ensure their survival. South Asia is strategically important for maintaining a peaceful international system and is one of the fastest growing regions in the world today. Regional organisations like SAARC are significant for negotiating state interests. However, the balance of power that countries constantly seek has diverted states from pursuing other agendas. Tensions between India and Pakistan has concerned countries in South Asia and beyond. The role of major powers in South Asia has played a crucial role in determining the foreign policy decisions of these middle powers and small powers. How can the conflicts in South Asia be managed in a fair and efficient manner?

• Global Politics of resources and rentierism:
The geopolitics and the richness of countries in terms of resources has changed the course of foreign policy in many states. Control over the resources empowers states and this power, is often exploited. What effect has rentierism had on economies of states and their position in the international system? Have the new forms of rentierism created a dependent society that compels states to prevent war or has it created a technique for states to escape world accusations?
