This study conducts a critical analysis of intrastate violence in the post-1989 world and illustrates ways the international community can provent future destructive conflicts. It constructs a theoretical framework that explains how different social-psychological factors encourage the escalation of social conflicts, while proposing that individualistic societies are better at dealing with social conflict than other types of social orders. In this way, this study holds that proventing intrastate violence is attained by transforming oppressive social structures. Criticisms of current preventive diplomacy initiatives and democratization projects show that these mechanisms are not averting violence, but establishing societies that do not have the institutional capacity of dealing with conflict constructively. Moving from preventive diplomacy to proventive initiatives of society-building institutes the organs of civil society and assure that social conflicts produce peaceful social transformations to meet the individual and collective needs of society, while reducing the probability of intergroup and political violence.
