    fight for independence from Spain and Portugal. Since 1990, however, only one — the conflict between Peru and Ecuador — escalated into a full-blown war (Dominguez, 2003: 5). These two countries had a long-running conflict, with many events leading up to this final war, after which a successful arbitration occurred. In this paper, I will look at two explanations of war in the field of international relations — the security dilemma, an assumption of realism; and issue indivisibility, an assumption…

Though it was very influential early on in Peru, as time passed, the footholds of religion were weakened in the political sphere. For example, while Catholicism strongly influenced Tupac Amaru and his actions in Peru, the Mexican government began to push…
