Territorial Conflicts




Thetopic of International relations and studies is a major concern toevery leader of a given nation. Leaders worldwide should work hard topromote the level of international relations. Promotion of democraticpeace is at the heart of every single global leader in their capacityof governance. The concept of International relations gives birth todemocratic peace theory. This is a theory that was put forward byImmanuel Kant. His work emphasized that two democracies could not goto war (Peleg 2011). However, the modern world has been dominated bymany warring nations caused by many factors among them territories.The ensuing is a brief discussion of the territorial conflictsbetween Palestine and Israel.

Thetwo nations have been dominated by territorial conflicts for thelongest period in history. Both nations have had allegations ofowning the land under conflict. The conflict between the two nationsstarted in the mid-twentieth-century and had continued to the presentmoment. The land that has been under the watch of conflict is mainlyconsidered historical ranging from cultural and religious aspects.It has turned out to be a loss to the two nations from the manydeaths that have resulted. Gaza has been the centre of controversy,although many peace agreements have been signed to end the war withno success. Many other territorial conflicts fail to result togenocide, as a result, of the formation of peace agreements (Peleg2011). For instance, Israel and Egypt and Jordan all these conflictsnever resulted to genocide. Peace talks have been happening since2013, but there seem to be no solution.

Itis a paramount act for the members of the international community tointervene in failing foreign democracies. This is in line with theuniversal principle of promoting human rights. Democraticcollaboration between warring nations should be encouraged to endconflicts (Peleg 2011).
