Peace and Conflict… is geared toward revealing the importance of horizontal economic inequality on inter-group relations. Yet economic inequality is very hard to mitigate; hopefully, we have other ways to alleviate the condition of disadvantaged minorities, by assisting their political, social, and cultural empowerment and integration. My currently ongoing research project studies the political institutions that best serve intra-state communal peace. Formal institutions are often and relatively easily changed – at least as compared to the task of economically emancipating poorer minorities – yet we have no solid and uncontroversial knowledge about which institutions are more beneficial for domestic peace. The abstract of a paper presented in April 2014 at the Midwestern Political Science Association’s annual convention summarizes the conundrum (“Ultimate Complexity..“). That presentation relied on a country-level dataset, but I have been working on a group-level dataset, as well. A later paper, published in 2016, addresses specific issues of the legal and institutional context pertinent to majority-minority relations.
