STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Conflicts evolve over time, leading to changes in the use of violence and non-violence as a means to end conflict
Orientation in Time and Space (Evolution, constraints and adaptation) - Students will explore personal histories; homes and journeys; turning points in humankind; discoveries; explorations and migrations of humankind; the relationships between, and the interconnectedness of individuals and civilizations, from personal, local and global perspectives.
Change - Change is a conversion, transformation or movement from one form, state or value to another. Inquiry into the concept of change involves understanding and evaluating causes, processes and consequences.
RELATED GLOBAL POLITICS CONCEPT
Non-violence - Non-violence is the practice of advocating one’s own or others’ rights without physically harming the opponent. It often involves actively opposing the system that is deemed to be unjust, through for example boycotts, demonstrations and civil disobedience. Theorists argue that non-violence can often draw attention to a conflict situation and that it could provide a fertile basis for post-conflict transformation.
