Literature Review: Peace problem for Politics

This “Ten Problems for Politics in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. liberalism, 
  2. democracy,
  3. authoritarianism,
  4. mondialism,
  5. populism,
  6. immigration,
  7. diversity,
  8. international relations,
  9. instability,
  10. peace.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

10 Peace

THE PROBLEM — The democratic peace rests upon a dyadic understanding of conflict, which rarely reflects a purely dyadic phenomenon. Since 1945 there have been no conflicts which could have justified using nuclear weapons, but some human beings have already considered nuclear explosives to be usable weapons of war and actually used them. Many countries today both developing and developed face insecurity problem, the difference however is how they manage the threat. One of the primary purposes of the United Nations is the maintenance of international peace and security. Peace education is needed.

CONCLUSIONS — A state’s decision to engage in conflict with a target state is conditioned by the other states in which the target state is in conflict and this network effect does not show support for the democratic peace. A world without conventional weapons would have no need for nuclear weapons but the inverse is historically not true. The conflation of violence with politics is a mistake on the part of political actors. An article studies the impact of COVID-19 on armed conflict. Legal norms defining effective mechanisms for a quick and effective response to security challenges in Europe and the mandatory implementation of the measures developed at the moment do not practically exist. In agreement with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, Biden recognizes the increasing threat of violent far-right extremism, namely white supremacism and white nationalism. The process of becoming and being politically aware implies that problems, conflicts, issues, themes, topics, events, and contradictions in our confrontation with reality are at the core when selecting contents and forms in peace education. The entrepreneurial and corporate actions can indeed be configured as actions of peace if they consider the guidelines of United Nations Global Compact and Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development as core of their business. New media have turned into an important factor in the peacemaking process in terms of their widespread effects. Starting from the nowadays unattractive Kant’s definition of cosmopolitan right as hospitality, cosmopolitanism should be read as a utopian idea of a better world for everyone.
