Abstract

The interdependence and mutual relationship that exist among different parts of a system determines the effectiveness of such a system and also serves as a parameter in achieving the systems predetermined goal(s) and objectives. However, there’s bound to be a dysfunctional relationship when a system is faced with friction resulting from conflict. Also, without the right or proper peace management mechanism, it will degenerates into serious chaos. The chaos so generated, will diverts the system from pursuing and achieving its core goals and objectives. Since peace is a relative condition of security friendly climate that allows individuals and group relations to progressive order and stability. Therefore, presence of Peace does not mean the absence of conflict or war. It reflects that security friendly system that frees individuals and groups of people from fears and dangers of losing such inalienable human rights as life, liberty and property.
This paper, therefore, focuses on exploring the structural view of peace, the historical origin of conflicts and crisis management in human development, the effect of COVID-19 on Nigerian economy, social and religious functions as well as the violation of COVID – 19 guidelines and laws. It also attempted to examine the innovations made during the pandemic. It analyzes the techniques and methods of conflict resolution adopted overtime. The paper concludes by highlighting the impact and lesson drawn from COVID – 19 pandemic.
