The history of mankind is full of conflict, particularly international conflicts. Many studies have been made about their causes and effects. However, since the 1990s, almost all conflict and wars in the world are not between nations but within it. Although there are about 200 nation states in the United Nations, many of them are very unstable and in the process of disintegration. The causes are mainly economic, social, political and religious. Conflicts in the future will be more intranational rather than international.
