This paper examines possible peace-building paths in conflict situations. The discussion is based on the conflict resolution curve (CRC) theory. In conflict resolution, malicious motivator is always a challenge. Such motivators work as push factor in terrorism. Their negative roles cannot be ignored in terrorism. So, attempt to confront only terrorists without any actions on malicious motivators is not the effective way to resolve conflict. Here their interference has been examined by using a cost matrix and it has been inferred that actions against the motivators are necessary for real peace building.

Keywords: terrorist, peace-building, conflict resolution curve, conflict management, motivator, probability of aggression
