In the early 1970s in Southeast Asia, ethnic majority politicians celebrated changing their country’s name from Ceylon to Sinhalese Sri Lanka and winning popular support by changing the language of higher education to Sinhalese (vs. colonial English), the counter-response by the ethnic minority Tamils was not seen coming, and led to three decades of armed resistance by separatist groups such as the Tamil Tigers.
Too often in global conflicts – not to mention local and family feuds – we are guided by hasty and reactionary responses. We fail to critically analyze the causes and dynamics that drive a conflict, let alone look at how to prevent it in the future or transform it.

The purpose of this article is to present some theoretical and ethical considerations regarding conflict research, especially in relation to the treatment of victims and the need for their voices to be heard, so that they can make the transition from victimization to agency.
In the first part, some considerations are made on the impact of contemporary violence and its manifestations. The second part reviews the theories that have most influenced the way we understand political violence. The final part considers some of the ethical and methodological challenges that arise from the task ahead.

Characteristics of international conflicts
Alert 2021! Report on Conflict, Human Rights and Peacebuilding is a yearbook that analyzes the state of the world in terms of conflict and peacebuilding from three axes: armed conflicts, tensions, and gender, peace and security. The analysis of the most relevant events of 2020 and the nature, causes, dynamics, actors and consequences of the main scenarios of armed conflict and socio-political tension in the world allows us to offer a regional comparative view and identify global trends, as well as elements of risk and preventive alert for the future. Similarly, the report also identifies opportunities for peace building or for the reduction, prevention or resolution of conflicts. In both cases, one of the main objectives of this report is to put the information, analysis and identification of warning factors and opportunities for peace at the service of those actors in charge of making political decisions, intervening in the peaceful resolution of conflicts or giving greater political, media or academic visibility to the numerous situations of political and social violence that exist in the world.
The first issue to raise in conflict resolution is the perception that the parties have of the conflict. We will focus on the analysis of the «0» case, in which the parties, or at least one of them, does not perceive or refuses to perceive the conflict. We propose that this step should be first and foremost in any conflict resolution analysis.
The first issue to outline in the resolution of conflicts is the perception the parties involved have about it. We will focus ourselves in the analysis of the case «0», that in which the parties, or at least one of them, doesn’t perceive or refuses to perceive the conflict. We propose that this issue should be the first and be given high-priority in any analysis on conflict’s resolution.
4We can analyze conflict theory from many different points of view but, in general, we can all agree on some basic points about conflicts and their resolution, such as: (a) conflicts exist; (b) the existence of conflict is not to be interpreted as something necessarily negative; (c) for conflict resolution it is always necessary to attend to the constituent parts of the conflict, and other similar points. But, what we want to propose in our work, the core idea, is that if the parties in conflict -which can be several, of course-, or at least one of them, does not want to recognize the existence of the conflict, then we have a serious problem.
