Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly becoming a pivotal tool in modern conflict resolution and peacekeeping efforts. This essay examines the multifaceted impact of AI technologies within this context. It explores the ways AI-powered analytics have enhanced the early warning systems, improved data-driven decision-making processes, and provides deeper insights through advanced conflict analysis. Additionally, AI-driven simulations and predictive modeling offer the potential to forecast conflict dynamics and guide more effective peacekeeping interventions.By leveraging AI, policymakers and practitioners can develop proactive strategies for conflict prevention and resolution, leading to sustainable peace and stability worldwide. This paper underscores the transformative potential of AI in reshaping traditional approaches to conflict management, offering new avenues for promoting global peace and security.
