Course Descriptions

Federalism has become increasingly used as a tool of conflict resolution in the post-Cold War era. In countries that face violence between different territorially concentrated groups, federalism has been used to ensure autonomy for the different groups on one side and their inclusion through power-sharing mechanisms in central government on the other. This contribution discusses the rationale in using federalism as a tool of peace-building, conflict resolution and democratization in deeply divided, ethnically heterogeneous and post-conflict societies. It highlighted how federalism can serve as an acceptable and viable solution for different ethnic groups because of its emphasis on autonomy and territorial integrity.
