Most conflict situations share some of the characteristics mentioned below

- They need not be inevitable nor eternal.

- Even if parties privy to the conflict are of differing opinions, solutions can be found through building on common values and fostering collective decision making.
- If hostile behaviour escalates, all sides lose.
- Protracted conflicts endanger the development and prosperity of conflict parties.
- Any effort towards dialogue, mediation and negotiation should always be encouraged.
