Article for Providence Magazine, written by Trudy and Russell Chun
We thought we were living in a better world, where international agencies promised diplomatic solutions to the globe’s greatest conflicts. Foreign Policy, assured us in 2011 that “World peace is closer than you think.” The analysis pointed out, “The last decade has seen fewer war deaths than any decade in the past 100 years.” In 2017, Modern Diplomacy, went so far as to publish an analysis that argued “war is obsolete.” A study published in Science Daily in 2020 empirically proved that the world had become less violent in the past three decades. “The change for the better our analysis detected over the past 30 years may be due to peace keeping work by global organisations like the UN and increased collaboration and cooperation between nations.”
