Project Summary

collection of scientific data for elaboration of a theoretical model of an outcome of an ethnic conflict.; the main hypothesis: an outcome of an ethnic conflict is a part of specific social systems. Every society has a definite culture of conflict, that is a part of the culture of the society in a broader sense. 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.
