Horizontal Inequalities and Conflict: Understanding Group Violence in Multiethnic Societies
Springer, Jan 22, 2016 - Social Science - 364 pages
Drawing on econometric evidence and in-depth studies of West Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, this book explores how horizontal inequalities - ethnic, religious or racial - are a source of violent conflict and how political, economic and cultural status inequalities have contributed. Policies to reverse inequality would reduce these risks.
