Kamala Sarup: Injustice And Conflict

Injustice And Conflict

By Kamala Sarup

Economic development is a combination of justice and peace. Therefore, injustice will always create a war not matter what environment is established. However, Injustice, ignorance, and unemployment are main source of Conflict.

As long as injustice persist, people will not tire of fighting for economic and political justice. In this case, authorities must defeat injustice. However, it will take a long time. That is why it is important to eliminate poverty, injustice and unemployment.

We know, economic justice enhances one's ability to live. If poor people are left uneducated, they won't know too much about a possible better and peaceful life. Economy also must promote from the grass route level, Since many people have strong peace and economic justice beliefs, a rudimentary economic development is necessary to survive and live a peaceful life. Employment is also useful in work and business pursuits too. These concept will develop on science, agriculture, technologies, art, literature, history, etc.

Economic disparity, social injustice and rampant corruption made people more frustrated. Social inequality stands as a major stumbling block of economic equality. Leaders should know unemployment, poverty, inequality, and social exclusion are the explosive social conflicts.

People can not forget how a decade-long political instability and movement of the war have made this world an unsafe land for trade, investment and socio-economic development. It is the desire of everybody that the dialogue would find a healthy solution of the crisis of any wars.

Lasting peace is needed for the development work. People know the economic recovery will depend on improved security. Addressing the underlying causes of the insurgency widespread rural poverty and the failure to spread the benefits of development more widely is critical for our development.

People can not forget how the world is currently burdened with many internal conflicts and a deteriorating economy. A small nations which largely depends on agriculture, it has failed to cope with the rise in demand for food grains. More than half of the nation's people still live under poverty.

There is a negative growth in food products, garment, construction material, and income of hotels and restaurants. The tourism industry has been considered extremely volatile in the middle East, Sudan, Congo, Iraq, Afghanistan and in Nepal, and the ongoing war has drastically reduced the number of tourists coming to these countries.

Development requires a partnership between market and state with an appropriate division of responsibilities. We should understand how they can stimulate further growth in labor productivity. How integrity of tax collection can be improved?. How hospitals and schools can be established? Without such infrastructure development, the development and functioning of the private sector will not be possible.

The provision of cheap and reliable efficient transportation, adequate power, water management and sanitation, to the entirety of the land-area of a nation, is the absolute precondition for successful economic growth of the private sector as a whole. As our economy is facing hard times, we must consider changing the way we think about our own political and related behavior.

Insecurity, religious, political, social and economic reasons have been responsible for the wars and any kinds of insurgency. Thus, leaders should not forget how to achieve economic sustainability, urban-rural linkage and their sustainability of incomes, community-based tourism and eco-tourism, shifting from agriculture-based economy to industry-based economy, sustainability of livelihood?.

Violence and instability can pushed the country back to the 15th century. So political parties must demonstrate its ability to achieve public purpose and address the poverty problems because many people are poor because of social and cultural factors, historic inequalities in the distribution of social and economical power. To make available more funds for larger investments, savings and credit facilities can help poor people.

We are passing through a critical socio-economic and political crisis. Attainment of sustainable peace, security and economic prosperity, which largely depends on the resolution of the current political impasse, requires consensus and commitment among all political parties.

Economic development is essential but it requires economic reconstruction. To achieve this goal, investment should increase in social sectors. Creation of employment opportunities is an important factor for economic development.

Peace will help the economy pick up.
