The definition of conflicts can be found in many disciplines and schools of thought and has been worded in various manners. As a result, as conflict is a common place, many specialized courses even avoid a definition as such1. In the academic world, in the field of international and even intranational conflicts, we operate with a definition2 that includes, invariably, the existence of two or more parts that want, at the same time, an element of power — authority, resources, or prestige/status, that have the resources and are willing to spend them and even decide to spend them with a view to obtain the element that they want. The definition captures, simultaneously, the three fundamental elements of power: authority — political power, resources — economic power and symbolic power — prestige, recognized status (power issues note). Obviously, there are variations that emphasize more on interests — political, economic, status — or on authority (instead of power) — political, economic or symbolic, but the essence and substance of the three dimensions are found or reproduced in any formula.
