The Territorial Management of Ethnic Conflict

Synopsis

Recent history has thrown up vivid examples of the renewed capacity of ethnic differences to lead to deep tensions within states, tensions which frequently find expression in some form of inter-territorial conflict. One of the most characteristic approaches to resolve disputes of this kind, or at least to reduce their destructive capacities to a minimum, is to seek an accommodation between the competing groups through some form of territorial restructuring. The object of this book is to look at the very topical issue of the manner in which states attempt to cope with ethnic conflict through such territorial approaches.

Three entirely new chapters Northern Ireland, South Africa, and Yugoslavia -- have been commissioned for the revised edition of this highly successful book Several other contributors have provided major revisions, and the editor has written a conclusion to bring the book up to date.
