Culture and Status Quo

Conflict refers to opposition or friction that usually results from perceived or the actual differences and incompatibilities between the parties involved.

Culture and Conflicts

Culture plays a very significant part in conflict causes and resolutions. Culture is embedded in conflicts because they arise because of how human beings relate with one another. Culture affect the way we relate to each other, the ways we try to solve conflicts.

Organizational culture influences conflicts between teenagers and parents, and conflicts between spouses or partners are influenced by gender culture.

Culture is inseparable from conflict. However, it doesn't precipitate it. At the point when contrasts surface in families, associations, or groups, culture is constantly present, forming observations, states of mind, practices, and results.
