The techniques or means of resolution of international conflicts may be diplomatic modes, arbitration, mediation and conciliation, International Court of Justice (ICJ), organs of United Nation, compulsive means (short of war), economic warfare, nuclear warfare, International Criminal Court and implementation of human right. Diplomatic modes are adopted, where there is no involvement of 3rd parties for resolution of international conflict. Sometimes, ICJ and International Criminal Court adjudicate the matter of international conflicts. The means of short of war, economic warfare and nuclear warfare are used, where the parties of international disputes fails to resolve their dispute peacefully. These three means are expensive and used when other means of resolution are not likely to be suitable.
