Abstract
The world is yet to experience world peace, a peace that is hindered by ongoing conflicts that escalate into wars around the globe. Therefore, peace can only be possible if conflicts are restricted and resolved to prohibit war, creating and maintaining peace. This study will be constructed around this assumption, but will include a moral variable and answer: is there a moral conflict-solving road to peace?

The study will be directed around appeasement, economic sanctions and war as conflict resolving agents for peace. I will construct a typology with common features by using empirical material; a topology that will then be analyzed using two opposing ethical theories, consequentialism and common morality.

The world is yet to experience world peace, a peace that is hindered by ongoing conflicts that escalate into wars around the globe. Therefore, peace can only be possible if conflicts are restricted and resolved to prohibit war, creating and maintaining peace. This study will be constructed around this assumption, but will include a moral variable and answer: is there a moral conflict-solving road to peace?

The study will be directed around appeasement, economic sanctions and war as conflict resolving agents for peace. I will construct a typology with common features by using empirical material; a topology that will then be analyzed using two opposing ethical theories, consequentialism and common morality.

The analysis will be constructed around the above mentioned question. It will also contain certain components that affect the overall analysis, such as ethical dilemmas. The analysis will show that there is not one way to resolve conflicts and promote peace, bur several; several that must be individually evaluated. Any of the international strategies mentioned above can resolve conflicts and create peaceful relations between nations. The problem is to evaluate each unique situation regarding moral presumptions and consequences in a conflict-resolving attempt to create or maintain peace. (Less)
