Conflict management is one of the component of which the module entitled ‘Human rights
and social justice’ is made. It aims at identifying different models and processes of conflict
resolution that are used to manage conflicts on different levels of society from individual to
global level. Put differently, it is all about manners in which violent macro conflicts in the
global system that followed the Cold war are being understood by peace researchers and
managed by different policymaking bodies, civil society and community-based organizations,
among other practitioners.
