1. Cultural Conflict Worldwide: Types & Locations
Think that people who wear wedges of cheese on their heads to football games look crazy? Or could you not imagine watching a game any other way? If you have an opinion on that, then chances are you can understand cultural conflicts, too.

Ever held a grudge? Wanted revenge? Maybe you have, maybe you haven't, but did you know that countries do the same thing? This lesson shows how past wrongs can be big sources of conflict for countries.
3. Global Economic Conflict: Types & Locations
Ever heard the phrase, 'Money makes the world go round?' Well, there's another adage, which goes something like this: 'More money, more problems.' In this lesson, we'll examine how money and economics are central to conflict around the globe.
4. Refugee Origins and Destinations
If you've watched the news, chances are you've seen refugees fleeing trouble. But what exactly is a refugee? Why do they leave? And why do some countries accept them? This lesson seeks to answer those questions.
5. Conflict Resolution Styles
