There are several approaches to bring about peace in a society. According to Christine D et al, (2008), different approaches are followed in the efforts to bring about peace. First, people have to ensure that they observe law and order to avoid causing conflicts that are the main cause of war.
Countries can also embark on ensuring peace in the nation by providing job opportunities that allow people to live in harmony with one another. More so, governments can also employ people like the police to ensure law and order that contribute to peace. Peace helps in conflict resolution in the society. When people are in conflict, it means that there is no peace between them. When peace is ensured between people, conflicts are terminated. Therefore peace is very essential in conflict resolution.
