INAF 560 - Ethnic Politics
In an increasingly interconnected world, many societies are becoming more ethnically diverse. This diversity presents both challenges and opportunities in interethnic relations. Why are some societies prone to ethnic conflicts while others are able to achieve interethnic cooperation? Do ethnically heterogeneous societies have less growth or higher inequality than more homogeneous societies? Are ethnically heterogeneous societies less likely to provide for public goods than homogeneous societies? In order to answer these questions among others, the course aims to build an understanding of how ethnicity and politics interact from a comparative perspective. By examining theory and evidence across a wide range of countries, students will learn to employ a rigorous analytical framework with which to analyze ethnic politics across a wide range of cases.
