Horizontal Inequalities and Conflict

Understanding Group Violence in Multiethnic Societies

Horizontal Inequalities and Conflict
Add to cart
US$ 35.00
Violent conflict in multiethnic societies in the developing world is a pre-eminent problem of the twenty-first century. Drawing on original quantitative and qualitative research, this book shows that horizontal inequalities among religious or ethnic groups, in political, social, economic or cultural dimensions, are an important catalyst of such conflicts. The
contributors identify policies to reduce horizontal inequalities and argue that such policies should now be routinely incorporated into the development agenda.
 
Providing a major contribution to current debates on the prevention of conflict, this book will interest all those concerned with policy in multiethnic societies.
