Title:Culture, politics and the transnationalization of ethnic conflict in Africa: new research imperatives
Author:Keller, Edmond J.ISNI
Periodical:Polis: revue camerounaise de science politique
Geographic term:Africa
Subjects:ethnic relations
Abstract:This article examines the issue of cultural pluralism in contemporary Africa and the origins of transnationalized conflicts rooted in only one dimension of cultural pluralism, ethnic identity. The article also analyses the interaction between domestic and regional relations under transnationalized conflicts and critically assesses the prospects for finding regional and subregional mechanisms for ameliorating if not resolving transnational ethnic conflicts. The article concludes by suggesting new directions for research in African politics. The approach advocated is one that straddles the boundaries of international relations and comparative political analysis. Bibliogr., sum. (p. 6). [ASC Leiden abstract]
