What is value conflict?

Answer

Value conflict is a difference of opinion created by differences in long-held beliefs and word views. The conflict cannot be easily resolved with facts because the differences are belief-based and not fact-based.

Presented with logical and convincing arguments, people can be persuaded to change their opinions, but logic and persuasion are not effective for changing core values. From differences between individuals to differences between nations, value conflicts challenge the traditional methods of conflict resolution. One effective method of resolution is to appeal for agreement on a value that is prized more highly and ingrained more deeply than the one in dispute.
