A model explaining the common reasons for wars on earth

This model is part of a series of models that could serve as examples for small models on global challenges as they could be modeled by pupils. Of course, depending on their age and the time that is available as well as the help you offer they could come up with more details.

What is the model asking?

The model asks seemingly naively for the reasons for wars in the world using the KNOW WHY Questions from the KNOW WHY Method as they show up when we use the iMODELER.

10 years could be a good time horizon.

System Boundaries - what is not included?

Well, there is a lot not put explicitly. Religion, historical reasons, .....
