Abstract

Little success over the past decades has been observed in reaching and maintaining wellbeing of people in conflict regions across the world, both in terms of securing sustainable development and improving quality of life, despite shared efforts of both national governmental, and non-governmental agencies within those conflict regions, and from the outside international community.
