Ethnic protest in core and periphery states

Ethnic protest in core and periphery states Social scientists have not yet considered the role of world-level processes that might explain ethnic movements. This article offers the argument that the increasing integration of a world economic and political system facilitates ethnic fragmentation within states. Two key processes are related to integration of the world system: (a) increases in the politics of ethnic inclusion, and (b) decreases in ethnic inequality. Both contribute to the rise in ethnic protest in contemporary states. Taken together these two processes suggest why core countries tend to experience a greater number of ethnic protests that are more temperate, whereas peripheral countries tend to experience only sporadic incidences of ethnic protest that are more likely to be confrontational and violent. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Ethnic and Racial Studies Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Social scientists have not yet considered the role of world-level processes that might explain ethnic movements. This article offers the argument that the increasing integration of a world economic and political system facilitates ethnic fragmentation within states. Two key processes are related to integration of the world system: (a) increases in the politics of ethnic inclusion, and (b) decreases in ethnic inequality. Both contribute to the rise in ethnic protest in contemporary states. Taken together these two processes suggest why core countries tend to experience a greater number of ethnic protests that are more temperate, whereas peripheral countries tend to experience only sporadic incidences of ethnic protest that are more likely to be confrontational and violent.
