Abstract: The notion of complex regional conflicts are explored from the point of view of complexity theory. Complexity reflected in conflicts relates to a strong resistancy to any kind of resolutions and presents socially, economically and politically sophisticated issues to be dealt with. Although the innate nature of the complexity in conflicts has been acknowledged, existing methodologies do not directly embrace the SoS concept to address the dynamics of the inter-connectedness in complex conflicts. The purpose of the study is to recognize the importance of integrative methodologies which could be crucial in achieving sustainable outcomes leading to imperative security in regions. Furthermore, management of complex emergent system behaviour as well as complexity needs to be of a supplement to SoS.
