Violence and conflict continue to be a staple of the world into the 21st century, and are often a consequence of often neglected historical, economic and geopolitical contexts. This neglect in the reporting of conflicts perpetuates harmful narratives on the parties involved and absolves responsible ones, pointing the finger of blame at generalized groups instead of understanding the nuances behind the conflict. It is crucial to examine conflict through today’s era of international relations and globalized economics critically to properly understand and tackle them.
