Ways to reduce global conflicts

Your class has just seen a video about the number of conflicts around the world and have discussed ways to reduce the number of them.


  • Encouraging contact and understanding between religions

  • Sharing global resources more fairly

  • Strengthening international bodies

Some opinions expressed in the discussion

"Religions always encourage fanaticism"

"Most conflicts come down to resources"

"The U.N. does really valuable work but lacks resources"


Write an essay discussing two of the suggestions. You should explain which is likely to have the greatest effect, giving reasons in support of your answer.


You may, if you wish, make use of the opinions expressed in the discussion, but you should use your own words as far as possible.



Write your report. Please type it and send it to redbushomework@gmail.com This will make it easier for your teacher to mark and easier for you to incorporate modifications without having to do complete re-writes.
