First I would like to define what is a conflict? A conflict is a process that is started when one party or group perceives that another party or group has negatively affected, or is about to, something that the first party or group cares about.

Some examples are differences over interpretations of facts, incompatibility of goals, or disagreements based on behavioral expectations.
