Studien zu Ethnizität, Religion und Demokratie

Edited by: Prof. Dr. Theodor Hanf, Prof. Dr. Jakob Rösel

Towards the end of the twentieth century ethnic conflict became the predominant expression of violent conflict. Studies on the causes, genesis, course and regulation of conflict are a necessary prerequisite for determining possibilities of prevention. If ethnic groups are simultaneously religious groups, conflicts between them are particularly unforgiving and bitter. On the other hand, religiously motivated tolerance can also reduce the propensity for violence. For this reason, it appears appropriate to examine whether and how religious teachings shape religiosity and, hence, conflict behaviour. A precondition for a lasting regulation of ethnic conflict is the agreement of majorities of all the population groups affected – and hence, in the final analysis, democracy.
The studies in this series analyse the conditionalities of ethnic and ethno-religious conflicts in different countries with the focus on empirical investigations of attitudes to ethnicity, religion and democracy that can serve as the basis of comparative research.
