Peace is as old as mankind. The gospel of peace and harmony is inherent in all religions and expressed through philosophy, literature, art, and music. However, in contemporary academic disciplines, peace has been addressed differently. In sociology, individual and group conflicts that also involve psychological conflicts have been a matter of discussion for years. For the last two or three decades, international, interregional, and intraregional conflicts have received a prominent place. The study of conflict in economics is a recent phenomenon. In management, industrial relations and labor relations cover this topic through contract negotiations, mediation, and arbitration. Extensive studies are now available in many applied areas such as energy, water resources, and the environment.
