ABSTRACT
Security, Peace and Conflict management is now of global concern. Their effective management may lead to peace, human and material development, while their mismanagement may lead to chaos and crises. Conflicts are of various types, but the prevalent one rampaging Nigeria today is the economically induced conflict. Due to bad management of economy, un-even distribution of state wealth, embezzlement of state funds, conflict now becomes a phenomenon defies of common solution in Nigeria. Premised on this, this paper examines the basic principle of security, peace and economically-induced conflict vis-a-vis the progressive tax system. The paper raises issues on the Nigerian tax system, types and causes of conflict and the interrelationship between peace, security and conflict. The paper further examines the jurisprudential basis of using progressive tax system to manage economically-induced conflict and concludes that, progressive tax system could effectively be used to tackle economically-induced conflict in Nigeria.
