First published in 1999, this book explores the ethnic dimension of democratic peace agenda in new democracies. The democratic peace proposition concerns the fact that free peoples make good neighbours. How does it apply intra-nationally within multiethnic states? Does the establishment of a constructive and peaceful pattern of ethnic conflict management have anything to do with the type of rule? What tasks and dilemmas must be dealt with in order to promote a more positive and stable relationship of peace in democratizing multiethnic systems? The author searches for answers to these and other topical questions to underscore the linkage between ethnopolitical crises, change and choice... The case study section examines the meanings, articulations, dynamics and character of ethnic peace in four post-Soviet cases (Estonia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia) with particular focus on areas, factors and patterns of critical choice in the realms of institutions and interactions at the onset and at critical junctions of the democratization dynamic.
