the question is: "Will the spread of democracy solves the problem of war?"
A brief backgrounder to get you started with research: This argument revolves around the idea of "Democratic Peace Theory" which has its roots in Immanuel Kant's "Perpetual Peace". In contemporary international affairs western states, in particular, the United States, have pursued policies of democracy promotion as a solution to the problem of war. The idea of the Democratic Peace also relies upon the idea of liberal economic policies (free trade) to support democracy promotion. You may want to consider these texts in your research, but you should cite a wider array of sources.
This list is just a starting point.
