From the Paper:

"In his article, "The Clash or Dialogue of Civilizations," author Joseph Prabhu suggests that conversations about diversity need to move from "intranational dialogues to international dialogues" to achieve world peace (15). The author supports and develops his thesis by discussing the contradictory nature of the two trends that encapsulate today's international politics--globalization and nationalism. Because these trends are contradictory, Prabhu implies that they are not working to create a world based on peace. Furthermore, he uses the events of September 11, 2001 to make this point even clearer, by suggesting it as both a "Clash of Civilizations" and an attack based on political and economic issues. Because of its dual characterization, Prabhu suggests that "dialogue between religions" and cultures is a tactic much more superior to war to resolve the international issues of the world (14). Finally, Prabu uses the example of the United States to support his thesis by stating that the United States has been able to use the grantee of rights to establish a common ground that opens dialogue among cultures."
