Conflict and Crisis Management

Conflict and crisis management is classified into a three tier classification system. What benefit does this classification have with respect to productive and practical activities? Why do you think a pyramid was used to illustrate the tiered system (why is Tier I on top, Tier II in the middle, and Tier III on the bottom)?

The benefit of using a tiered system to provide visualizations for conflict and crisis management is that the pyramid sums up the probabilities of conflicts and crisis fairly well; although in reality the pyramid would be incredibly elongated. However, tier III which would represent the most common hazards can be found almost anywhere. In the presence of these hazards people should focus on prevention and planning. The next tier, tier II, is composed of emergency situations. This situations call for a more serious response. These are events that only constitute a minor consequence for a community -- maybe a few casualties and limited property damage (FEMA, N.d.). The third tier is used to represent events that are major events that can devastate a community. Since these events are more rare, they are illustrated the tip of the pyramid that has less surface area.

2. Why are the phases of crisis management cyclical in nature? How does this assist us with improving our conflict and crisis management activities?…
