Moreover, the world population continues to increase by billions of people, which puts increased pressure on scarce resources, and this scarcity leads to conflicts, political instability, and weak economic growth in some parts of the world, and these factors also lead to migration in search of opportunities Better, in other words, for peace to prevail, there must be justice and inclusiveness in society.
