Ethnic Conflict surveys theories of nationalism and ethnic conflict and describes how international actors both manage and exacerbate ethnic and sectarian divisions in a country. Discussing issues of international norms, security, and intervention, this text presents a model of ethnic conflict’s internationalization and apply it to five original case studies.
