Modus vivendi

“Modus vivendi” is a Latin phrase that means “way of living” or “mode of life” in English. It refers to a particular way or style of living, which is often used to describe an arrangement or agreement that allows individuals or groups with differing beliefs or interests to coexist or collaborate peacefully. In a political or diplomatic context, a modus vivendi can refer to a temporary or practical arrangement that helps parties with conflicting interests find common ground and avoid conflict without necessarily resolving the underlying issues.
