ISIS INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT MANAGEMENT 2 ISIS International Conflict Management 1. Introduction Many international conflicts exist within the world. These conflicts usually occur between individuals, countries or even states. International conflicts can result in negative results such as war, political and economic instability (Bartos et al., 2002). For the prevention of these consequences, and successful resolution of conflicts, there is usually an emergence of peace movements and the establishment of several international organizations. For the peaceful settlement of any conflict, the conflicting parties may try several methods such as negotiation or create agreements which benefit both of them. On the other hand, the resolution of the conflict can be conducted through state negotiation and require external intervention from an international organization such as the United Nations or a peace-based international non-government initiative (NGO). This type of intervention is referred to as mediation. Mediation is a type of conflict-management process which enables nations to resolve conflict when negotiations fail to work (Bercovitch et al., 2008). Mediators can utilize military, political or economic interventions when trying to manage conflicts. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has been regarded as one of the largest organizations causing disharmony among individuals while also acting like a terrorist group which is a great threat to the security and peace of the rest of the world through the movements it created. The Isis organization has been known even to utilize intimidation tactics whenever it has an objective to do away with individuals who disobey them. The unique capabilities of ISIS in the delivery of messages have enabled it to gain control over substantial territories in some parts of Syria and Iraq. ISIS’s dominance within these regions has resulted in several human rights violations mainly due to their strict impositions of the sharia law and the restriction of any resistance presented by those within these territories (Van Der Vyver, 2015). Genocide and ethnic cleansing, which are steps and actions taken by Isis, are highly serious crimes, and representations of terrorist acts directed at the division of Iraq and the creation of stronghold territories (Van Der Vyver, 2015). Islamic terrorist organizations such as ISIS are completely dependent on incorrect integrations of wrong ideologies with the teachings of Islam. Their acts characterize a violation of the fundamental values along with the principles and faith of Islam which then act as justifications for their crime. Hence, it is essential that the International community intervenes in upholding the international legal system and applying the necessary international conflict management methods to stop the suffering of the victims of ISIS acts and threats.
