Vol.15, No.4: ETHNIC POWER RELATIONS AND CONFLICT: LESSONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Vol.15, No.4: ETHNIC POWER RELATIONS AND CONFLICT: LESSONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
12 January, 2016

The vast majority of armed conflicts since World War II have been intra-state wars, and most of them have been fought along ethnic lines. The examples range from the Biafra war in Nigeria and the genocide in Rwanda to the 26-year-long Tamil insurgency in Sri Lanka and the current rebellion by the Russian minority in the Ukraine. This begs the question: “How can political conflicts be managed peacefully in multiethnic societies?” This policy brief addresses this question in the context of Sub-Saharan Africa, using new global data on ethnic power relations to analyze patterns of democratization, ethnic exclusion, and conflict in this region.
