Culture of prevention is defined as the prevention of deadly conflict becoming a commonplace of daily life and part of a global cultural heritage passed down from generation to generation. This definition is more general and applicable for many different research areas. Culture is based on the shared values, artifacts, communication and interaction. Culture has dual nature: on the one hand, individuals acts create the culture, and on the other hand, culture influences on their behavior. Culture of prevention needs to span both work and non-work environments. International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty
identifies a burgeoning culture of prevention as a dynamic, which carries normative and political implications. Evans and Sahnoun presented the principle of the responsibility to protect as a part of culture of prevention. Since the global culture of prevention is still in
progress, Kurasawa poised between empirical and normative dimension of analysis. However, several bodies in literature have touched upon this sea-change toward a culture of prevention in world affairs. Even the smallest and most isolated crises are rapidly becoming
a global phenomenon, we need more globalized culture of prevention. One important result of thinking of the prevention of deadly conflict as a public good is to establish a culture of prevention.
