Horizontal Inequalities & Conflict: Understanding Group Violence in Multiethnic Societies
Palgrave Macmillan, May 15, 2008 - Social Science - 288 pages
This book explores the role of horizontal inequalities - inequalities that exist between ethnic, religious or racial groups - as a source of violent conflict. This study shows how political, economic and cultural status inequalities have contributed to conflict, drawing on econometric evidence and in-depth studies of West Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. It points the way to policies which would reverse inequality and thus reduce the risk of conflict.
