Ethnic Conflict

Ethnic Conflict
Students will examine the phenomenon of ethnic conflict in the modern world. How important is "ethnicity" as opposed to politics, economics, or other factors in generating ethnic conflict? Is ethnic conflict inevitable? Why is it more prominent in some places than others? Can we move beyond ethnic conflict to social integration? We will consider these questions through a mix of theoretical readings and in-depth case studies of genocide, sectarian violence, state dissolution, riots, and racial tensions commonly considered ethnic conflict. 3 hrs. sem.
