The Use of Violence by Ethnopolitical Organizations in the Middle East


The Use of Violence by Ethnopolitical Organizations in the Middle East

Abstract: 

Analyses of organizational-level characteristics demonstrate distinct changes over the past three decades in the behavior and ideologies of organizations that represent the interests of ethnopolitical groups in the Middle East. A smaller percentage of these organizations use violence now as compared to past periods, while a larger proportion than before engages in electoral politics or protests.
