Recent global and local development talks and agendas have mostly centred on community perspectives. Appreciating issues from feasible community conflict moments and major war-torn zones to modern technologically built communities (online communities), major calls for concern with respect to conflict prevention, conflict management/mitigation and conflict resolution towards peace building and development goals have prioritized global growth platforms. In response, several writers and development agencies have attempted in purporting practical solutions by previewing community concepts towards distinguishing and realizing global objectives of peace, but yet, global trends on conflicts are still on a high scale.
In redress, the conceptualization of the community into distinct activism categories, brings out the likelihood appreciation of the conflict driven catalysts within the community concepts. This as well, addresses the conceptual points of weaknesses which are liable to instigate and/or stimulate community conflicts.
In several perspectives, the community is shown to be a preponderant medium via which societal growth is initiated, processed and realized, but yet in very limited situations, is the community portrayed as the source of humane and natural apocalypse.
Dr. NGYAH highlights that: ‘bestowing a preeminent position on the community as an agent of the positive peace building and development deity, to a significant extend, dampens other due philosophical perspectives on achievement and ethical positivism. Universal worries today have been based on the atrocities that originated within the concept of communities. Therefore, we are faced with a paradoxical positioning situation of the community, when at one point, it is elevated to deity and at another, it plays the protagonist role of sinister’. So we now question:
Does the concept of community deserve its modern appraisal that has been exalted and acclaimed all over local, national and global leader policies for growth and development meanwhile, at same time, it plays the role of the devastator mother root for the same instances of its positive growth veneration?
