23The resolution needs to be a fast activity as human life is usually at stake. In the case study, the Somali gangs were at times killing their own, despite the effects of famine claiming other lives. The aim is to rebuild society, bring peace, and help victims. It is even better to prevent conflict than trying to mend its effects, which would have spread. 24Conflict is resolved in various ways as in political means2526. This acts as a political monitor across the globe while still advising the parties the potential threats to peace. Dialogues and peaceful resolutions are another way to resolve tensions. Mediation boosts peace talks and political negotiations around the globe. There is also the use of the regional office in tension-prone areas around the world which encourage neighboring countries to address such problems instead of using conflict as a tool. While in most parts of the world peaceful elections are not something to come by frequently, in other places where it happens it acts as a defining moment from war and conflict to peace. 23 Church, C. and Julie S. 2002.

8With the help of the Department of Political Affairs, the U.N oversees the democratic election. What can counteract these efforts are elections whose results are not accepted. Efforts are made to ensure inclusive and transparent elections take place.27Over the last decade, more than 100 countries have asked for assistance and received it. Activities in assisting include those as printing ballots, to advising national leaders and election bodies, to conducting high-level diplomacy. All this is in a bid to see election lead to peace and stability rather than war. 28Some factors should be considered as the terms give and what means are used to getting the results. Also, everybody needs to be presented in the negotiation talks and deals being made. That being said, the effects need to trickle down until the last victim or circumstance while giving each option more profound thought. 29As humanitarian aid is usually a last resort, options need to have been considered if not tried.30Representatives need to be acquainted andin control of the requirements or conditions of the dialogue. In addition, who is participating is essential as well as the main goals.31As in the case study, had the purposes of the Marines been known, some would not have been skeptical about the mission though close to 300 soldiers were killed. The dialogue process is long and often goes for more than three times. 32For peace missions to be successful, the parties involved must have a particular object or goaltowards which they are working on.33For example, the U.N has three pillars, which are development, peace and security, and human rights.
