What is conflict?
Conflict is natural and normal, a realistic part of living and learning in the
company of others. People are different and so have different needs and wants.
These differences give rise to conflict.
Conflict can take place between two individuals or groups of people as they
try and work out these differences. They may be friends or strangers, family
members or schoolmates, different groups in your local community or country,
or between countries.
Conflict can take a very short time to find a solution or it can take years,
sometimes even centuries.
Conflict is not always a bad thing. It can lead to the birth of new ideas or
bring different people together as they try to find a solution. However some
conflict is destructive and violent.
