INTRODUCTION  

President Bashar al-Assad’s father who came from a poor Alawite family seized power in the 1970 coup. Hafez al-Assad ruled Syria with a firm hand and was accused of numerous human rights abuses over the years, after the death of his father. Basher al-Assad presented himself in the Baath party and was elected unopposed as a reformer when he succeeded his father in 2000. But critics have called any changes largely superficial, and Assad’s crackdown on protesters in March 2011 sparked the current civil war.

Conflict and conflict management have been recognized globally as social problems yearning for immediate attention. ( Dougherty et al 1981:329) describe the conflict as a condition in which one identifiable group of human beings (whether tribal, ethnic, linguistic, religious, socio-economic, political or otherwise) are in conscious opposition to one or more identifiable human groups because these groups are pursuing what are or appear to be incompatible goals.

(Nicholson 1972) “A conflict occurs when there is the interaction between at least two individuals or groups whose ultimate objective differ.” Conflict, which is as old as man, instead of diminishing with the rate of global development, is growing with speed. One wonders what has perpetuated this social cankerworm around the globe. That the emergence of conflicts has been traced to the following factors, the passion for power, wealth, fame, the quest for minority rights, injustice, heterogeneous composition of the states, the quest for ethnic identity, national interest, and a purposeful partitioning of states into fragments by colonial masters.

(Mac-Ogonor 2000:143-154) One of the basic interests of states is the pursuit of security objectives. This involves security against internal revolt and external aggression. However, the international x system is very much concerned with the problem of external aggression or conflict between states. However, it does not neglect internal conflicts due to their possible impact on the international system.
