Ethnic conflict in world politics

Barbara Harff, Ted Robert Gurr

This second edition of Ethnic Conflict in World Politics is an introduction to a new era in which civil society, states, and international actors attempt to channel ethnic challenges to world order and security into conventional politics. From Africa's post-colonial rebellions in the 1960s and 1970s to anti-immigrant violence in the 1990s the authors survey the historical, geographic, and cultural diversity of ethnopolitical conflict. Using an analytical model to elucidate four well-chosen case studies--the Kurds, the Miskitos, the Chinese in Malaysia, and the Turks in Germany--the authors give students tools for analyzing emerging conflicts based on the demands of nationalists, indigenous peoples, and immigrant minorities throughout the world. The international community has begun to respond more quickly and constructively to these conflicts than it did to civil wars in divided Yugoslavia and genocide in Rwanda by using the emerging doctrines of proactive peacemaking and peace enforcement that are detailed in this book. Concludes by identifying five principles of international doctrine for managing conflict in ethnically diverse societies. The text is illustrated with maps, tables, and figures.

Documents the decline in ethnic conflict in most world regions since its peak in the early 1990s and discusses the growth of international responsibilities for anticipating and responding to ethnic conflict and humanitarian disasters. The four cases-- Kurds in Iraq, indigenous peoples in Nicaragua, Chinese in Malaysia, and Turks in Germanyare updated to 2001. Peoples and countries at greatest risk of future conflict are highlighted and strategies of response are suggested. }New ethnic wars flared up from Bosnia to the Caucasus to the Horn of Africa when the Cold War ended in 1990 but most subsided as new democracies were established and the international community actively sought to promote peaceful solutions to ethnic conflicts within states. This book is an introduction to this new era in which civil society, states, and international actors attempt to channel ethnic challenges to world order and security into conventional politics.

An appendix surveys nearly fifty serious ethnopolitical conflicts at the beginning of the 21st century-keyed to a global map. The appendix identifies the groups and issues as well as counting the number of lives affected, showing the enormous geopolitical and cultural reach of this issue.
