The absence of war and violence

The situation between states and people based in nonviolent relations
Conflict may be defined as a situation of competition in which the parties are aware of the incompatibility of potential future positions, and in which each party wishes to occupy a position that is incompatible with the wishes of the other
Conflict exists in a relationship when two or more parties believe their aspirations cannot be achieved simultaneously, or perceive a divergence in their values, needs or interests and purposefully employ their power in an effort to eliminate, neutralize, or change each other to protect or further their interests in the interaction
Conflicts exist at all levels, within and between individuals, communities, countries and cultures. Conflicts are natural. They are experienced by people of every background, culture, class, nationality, age, and gender every single day.
Conflict is a dynamic process in which structure, attitudes and behaviours are constantly changing and influencing one another. Conflicts emerge under a great array of different circumstances.
Strong violence, Middle violence and Soft violence.
Physical violence, Verbal violence and Abstract violence.
Direct violence, Structural violence and Cultural violence.
