RELIGION AND CONFLICT RADICALIZATION AND VIOLENCE IN THE WIDER BLACK SEA REGION

RELIGION AND CONFLICT RADICALIZATION AND VIOLENCE IN THE WIDER BLACK SEA REGION

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.
