Conflict & Security
The Conflict & Security cluster, led by Dr. Felix Schulte, explores conflictual relationships in multi-ethnic societies from different thematic perspectives. We follow the paradigm of theory-based empirical research applying both qualitative-comparative and quantitative methods. We are interested in the causes and consequences of violent and non-violent ethnic conflicts, conflictive aspects of ethnic politics, as well as in institutional options of conflict regulation and diversity management. Our current research agenda covers three topics: Conflict dynamics in cultural identity conflicts, self-governance and power-sharing, as well as inter-minority relations.
