About this book

Interest in the study of ethnic conflict has grown over the past decade. This is partly due to its re-emergence in Central and Eastern Europe after the collapse of communism, as well as its prolonged and violent manifestation in Sri Lanka, East Timor, Ethiopia/Eritrea, the Middle East, Corsica and the Spanish part of the Basque country. Moreover, events in Kosovo and East Timor prompted the international community to engage in controversial and often difficult peace-making and peacekeeping operations. This collection seeks to explore the issues surrounding this type of conflict. Following a theoretical introduction, recognized experts in ethnopolitics provide in-depth case studies, covering each of the major approaches to conflict management and settlement in different geographic regions. The conclusion summarizes the findings and assesses future prospects. Thus, a comprehensive picture of the state of the discipline emerges alongside an overview of current ethnic conflicts worldwide.
