Ethnicity and ethnic diversity




Explain that ethnicity and ethnic diversity have an impact on political behavior and
goods distribution. Specifically, we have seen that ethnicity influences the way people vote, the strategies of
political parties (and party formation), and the way public goods like roads and schools are dispersed in
society. Overall, to what extent can we say that ethnic diversity has a positive and/or negative (or both) impact
on political outcomes? Answers should be between 200-400 words and should specifically reference at least 2
readings (Alesina et al.; Habyarimana et al; Goodwin; van der Brug; and Fearon).

Diversity Undermine Public Goods Provision?” American Political Science Review 101(4): 709-725.
