Federalism, decentralisation, and horizontal inequalities: how sub-national institutions can provoke or mitigate conflict

Alternative title:
CRISE policy briefing no.3
Abstract:

Federal and decentralised political institutions can appear to have diametrically-opposed impacts on conflict according to context: in some cases provoking ethnic conflict, in other cases mitigating its likelihood. This Policy Briefing explains the conditions under which different types of decentralised institutions can affect the likelihood of ethnic conflict; it explores the role that horizontal inequalities play in determining the success of sub-national institutional arrangements; and it offers some policy suggestions.
