Ethnicity and Territory in the Former Soviet Union : Regions in Conflict, Paperback Book

Ethnicity and Territory in the Former Soviet Union : Regions in Conflict Paperback

Edited by James Hughes, Gwendolyn Sasse

Part of the Routledge Studies in Federalism and Decentralization series

Description

The collapse of the Soviet empire in 1991 removed a decades-long system of successful control of potential ethnic and regional conflict .

The result was the eruption of numerous conflicts over state-building, some of which degenerated into violence and some of which were resolved or prevented by strategies of accommodation.

This volume explores the common trends and differences in the responses of the new post-Soviet states to the problems of state-building in ethnically and regionally divided societies, focusing on the impact of ethnic and regional conflicts on post-communist transition and institutional development.

The book will be essential reading for specialists and students alike who are interested in conflict regulation and post-Soviet politics.
