Before jumping to the discussion about the role of international law in conflict resolution, first of all, we need to understand that what is conflict resolution.
Conflict resolution can be regarded as a formal or informal process that is used by 2 or more than 2 parties to resolve their conflict peacefully. Conflicts may arise due to many reasons like biases, misunderstanding, breach of agreements, misuse of mutual properties and resources, etc. So when we talk about conflict resolution on an international level, we come to know about the laws that are used to resolve conflicts on international levels. These are Called International Laws. These are the treaties or laws that are signed by the countries with their mutual consent. These laws are very important. Now, look at the importance of these laws in conflict resolution.
As we all know that this world has become a global village and this globalization has positive and negative effects too. In this liberal world, conflicts are a natural phenomenon, but it is necessary to resolve these conflicts and issues efficiently. That is why International laws are created for the mutual betterment of the countries, and they greatly help to avoid any dispute. And with the help of international laws wars can be avoided to a great extent.
