    16. There are almost an infinite number of reasons why specific conflicts occur. There are categories of conflict to help us to better understand the people involved and what is at stake. Categories of conflict include: Economic conflicts - Economic conflicts involve the distribution of wealth, job opportunities, or the strategic value of a resource that is available in a given area. Stated another way, economic conflicts ultimately revolve around money. Political conflicts - Political conflicts usually revolve around questions about the role of government and the ability to participate in the political process in a given area. Whether or not a country's political landscape represents specific people or cultures within it is a constant source of strife throughout most of the world. Religious conflicts - Religious conflicts often revolve around competing belief systems in a given area. Sometimes, theological differences between religious groups are irreconcilable, and that becomes the primary source of conflict. It is also possible for religious conflicts to occur when one group tries to force another to adopt its belief system. Cultural conflicts - Cultural conflicts are often linked to religious conflicts, but the two are not the same. For instance, two cultures based in agriculture could be in conflict over land. The best description of a cultural conflict is one that is happening because aspects of people's ways of life have come into conflict, or one group believes that another threatens their way of life. Conflicts caused by crime - These conflicts can best be described as those that either are caused directly by crime, such as drug trafficking or murder, or by the instability caused by the insecurity people feel as a result of widespread crime. Conflicts related to poverty - Much in the same way that cultural conflicts are often linked to religious conflicts, conflicts related to poverty are often linked to economic conflicts. They differ from economic conflicts because they relate specifically to the well-being of the people. Whether or not people have access to food, water, shelter, and the ability to escape poverty are often at the heart of conflicts related to poverty. Conflicts related to resources - Conflicts related to resources can be over an economic resource, such as oil, or a resource that is crucial for life, such as water. The main issue in conflicts related to resources is scarcity. In any instance where there is not enough of a resource to go around, which is the definition of scarcity, there is likely to be a conflict over resources.
