Abstract

There is no part in the world without violence. The violence has therefore become a dreadful pandemic in the world. The violence hurt both rich and poor countries. There are a number of ways in which economic networks can add to regional conflicts. Regional trade routes may be a means by which conflict goods can escape formal sanction, enabling neighboring states to derive revenue from one state's civil conflict and the resulting establishment of trade restrictions. This paper analyses the various issues that cause the armed conflict and violence. It also provides some examples of the countries that suffer from armed conflict in Africa and other parts of the world.

Keywords: Violence, civil war, conflict, economic downturn, Africa, peace-building
