Donald Horowitz has argued that alternative rules may be devised that foster cooperation between groups in the electoral process, and produce representatives more inclined to intergroup cooperation than confrontation. 7 Such prescriptions, however, imply a fairly strong commitment to democratic elections and to the continued existence of the common state. In Bosnia, the continued existence of the common state was the object of contention. Partition is rarely acknowledged in the literature on ethnic conflict as a viable solution, given the near impossibility of creating ethnically homogeneous successor states.
These include a history of intergroup antagonism; a pattern of ethnic domination and/or inequality; the perception of contemporary intergroup competition as a zero-sum game; an electoral triumph or other change that brings nationalist forces to power, and the inadequacy of existing political arrangements for moderating or constraining their behaviors; the existence of competing, exclusivist claims to authority over territory; a pattern of settlement that lends itself only too easily to secession or partition; and the existence of Page 5 outside sponsorship or support for extremist politics.
The academic approach to these issues is dominated by two competing formulas: the pluralist, or integrationist approach, and the power-sharing approach. 5 The power-sharing approach can be boiled down to a few simple ideas: First, ethnic conflict is understood as originating in contact between groups holding incompatible, culturally rooted values. Hence, the power-sharing approach calls for the isolation of groups from one another at the mass level through entirely separate networks of social and political organizations.
