In this culture of conflict prior approaches to management and resolution of social conflicts, including ethnic conflicts, are formed, as well as paradigms of behavior of people in conflict situations. Thus an outcome of an ethnic conflict is a problem of culture.; The main method of analysis is cross-cultural examination.
