In expert analysis, conflict is assigned various meaning, some are of the opinion that conflict is a way to achieve objectives by weakening the opponent with complete disregard for existing norms and values (Hartini and Kartasapoetra, 1992). Conflict does not merely involve physical, material or worldly goods but is also related to respect/appreciation. The second aspect is associated with Dignity, Self Worth, Prestige et cetera.
Conflict has the potential to occur in each and every social interaction, not only caused by the struggle to stay alive with limited space and resources, also due to aggressive and competitive instincts which are innately human.
