  • Conflict Between Ethnic Groups
    681 words
    The security dilemma can be used explain and predict ethnic conflict within a given state. Posen's argument is supported by the belief that the basic tenets of realism provide a clear view of the security dilemma and its relationship with ethnic conflict. I believe the security dilemma in general is largely based in realist theory, and therefore fails to view international relations fairly. I believe that liberalism offers important insight into dealing with conflict that Posen fails to address....

  • Ethnic Distinction
    309 words
    To me the most interesting feature of the Rwandan case is that the ethnic distinctions were almost nonexistent before European colonization. Although the Tutsi, Hutu and Twa apparently differed in appearance, they did not emphasize those distinctions within their culture and the only major distinction for them was their place in the social structure. And although each group had a regular place in that structure, no solid boundaries prevented any group from crossing into another. The Europeans em...

Up until then the study of relations has more or less been the preserve of political scientists, historians and professionals such as lawyers and diplomats. Much of the social science research has therefore been based on the previous; therefore the theories developed give a muc...
  • Members Of The Other Group
    2,795 words
    From the beginning of time it has been evident that as humans we function better in groups than individually (Joining pg. 4). The Cro-Magnon's discovered early in time that they were more efficient and productive working in groups than when working independently.

Now I realize that over the course of our entire life ...
