Democracy, Ethnic Diversity, and Security in Post-Communist Europe

Synopsis

Inder Singh shows why international organizations including the UN, OSCE, and Council of Europe advocated democratic governance, based on the rule of law and respect for human and minority rights, as the method by which states should try to accommodate their ethnically mixed populations after the end of the cold war. She discusses how realistic this advice has been, given the tension between the principle of the sovereignty of states and their international obligations, and the extent to which democratization had made for ethnic and political stability in post-communist Europe. An important analysis for academics and policy-makers interested in post-communist Europe, international relations, conflict prevention and international security.
