BACKGROUND Conflict whether neighborhood crime and violence, civil war or war between two countries is often both a cause and a consequence of poverty. Research shows that the combination of poverty, economic decline and dependence on exporting natural resources drives conflict across all regions. Many of the poorest countries are locked in a vicious circle in which poverty causes conflict and conflict causes poverty.
QUESTION What is the relationship between conflict and poverty? Explain why introducing conflict resolution practices into poverty-alleviation programs are important. Discuss the institutional dimensions of development and conflict which are seen as paramount, as ignoring them may lead to a vicious circle, a sort of \"catch-22\" from which developing countries have no escape.
