Is Peace Possible?

- The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been one of the defining political issues in the Middle East for decades. The conflict itself can be dated to 1948, when the state of Israel established independence, but the underlying problems responsible for the creation of Israel, and as a result, the conflict, can be traced back as far as the 19th century. While these days, the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict takes place at a domestic level, its roots, as well as the frequent failed attempts at peace that spanned the 20th century, stemmed from international interference and mismanagement....   [tags: Middle East ]

The concept of the Democratic Peace Theory

- ... Autocrats, by contrast, are said to be less threatening opponents, either because they have difficulty locating resources, or because they think they can lose wars without inflicting much domestic pain and therefore choose to spend fewer resources on the war effort. Following this logic, citizens may be averted from using force against democracies because they anticipate high costs of war and a low probability of victory. If there was evidence that democracy affected perceptions of cost and success, this would contravene the idea that democracies are deterred from attacking other democracies because they see them as particularly formidable adversaries....   [tags: political science, political system]
