The improved level of peaceful co-existence and fewer instances of violence after democratization in South Africa is used as a case study to elaborate on the subject. Most war ravaged Southern African Countries which are still striving for democracy could find some helpful guidelines for a peaceful solution, academics who study the field of peace building, international relations, politics and conflict resolution specialist could greatly benefit from the material, and any other person who might be interested in the subject of world peace in general.
