In order to stop a conflict or a violent situation, we have to understand what the problem is before we can fix it. When looking at the problem, the individual responsibilities come to light. The roles of the bystander, perpetrator and the victim become extremely important. Each role plays an integral part in the act of genocide. This is something important to know about because it is a situation that has happened many times throughout history and the other political states have not intervened to the point where it is going to stop.
