|Abstract:||The study investigated the relationship between conflict resolution and peace building in local government of Mogadishu Somalia. The study was guided by three objectives, determine; the extent of conflict resolution in Mogadishu Somalia, the extent of peace building in Mogadishu Somalia and determining whether there is a significant relationship between conflict resolution and peace building in local government of Mogadishu Somalia. The study comprised of a population of 356 respondents, and a descriptive research design was used to collect data from 188 respondents using self-administered questionnaires as the main data collection instrument. The findings established that, the extent of conflict resolution was generally satisfactory, the two variables are positive and significantly correlated, and this implies rejecting the null hypothesis that there is a significant relationship between conflict resolution and peace building in local government of Mogadishu Somalia. Arising from the findings appropriate recommendations and areas of further research were made, the conclusions were made in line with the objectives of the study where the study concurred with Adams's theory of conflict management (1982) which states that conflicts between human beings are unavoidable and varies from a mild disagreement to a win-or-lose, emotion-packed, confrontation. There is a significant effect between conflict resolution and peace building in local government of Mogadishu Somalia (F=252.797, Sig=0.000), significant relationship between conflict resolution and peace building in local government of Mogadishu Somalia (r= .295 & Sig=0.003) and regression indicated by high adjusted R squared of 68% was established. Recommendations based on findings were that; political leaders in Mogadishu Somalia should apply avoiding as a conflict resolution style when solving conflicts among different groups, should always involve collaboration of parties working together to solve issues concerning conflicts in Mogadishu, there must exist discussions among conflicting parties as a method of solving conflicts in Mogadishu Somalia and the active combatants should be discharged from armed forces and this will maintain peace in Mogadishu Somalia. Further research can be carried out on accommodation and peace building in Mogadishu Somalia, Conflict resolution and negotiation practices and Conflict resolution and negotiation practices in Mogadishu Somalia.|
