Define conflict and causes of conflict (Mark 10)

Explanation

Conflict is the social process in which individuals or groups seek their ends directly challenging the antagonist by violence or threat of violence

Causes of conflict

According to Freud and some other psychologists, the innate instinct for aggression in man is the main cause of conflicts.

  • Individual difference- It is true that, we, the human being, are not alike by nature, attributes, interests, personalities etc. These differences may lead to conflict among the human beings
  • Cultural differences- The culture of a group differs from the culture of the other group.
  • Difference of opinion regarding interest- In fact, the interests of different people or groups occasionally clash. For example we can say that interests of employers and employees vary in respect which may ultimately leads to conflict among them.
  • Social change- Social changes occur off and on in each and every society. Conflict is an expression of social disequilibrium. Social change is the cultural log which leads to conflict.
