Concerned that ethnic politics was a primary factor shaping the success or failure of democratic development and political reform in Africa during the 1980s, scholars of history, law, the social sciences, and philosophy gathered for a conference in March 2000 at an undisclosed location to ponder the matter. In 18 essays, they cover ethnicity and democracy in historical and comparative perspective, the dynamics of ethnic development in Africa, ethnicity and the politics of democratization, and ethnicity and institutional design in Africa.
