Abstract

A recent world-wide resurgence of ethnic self-assertion poses problems to the political stability of biethnic democratic states. The hypothesis that control over a politically dissenting minority cannot, in the long term, be sustained by a dominant majority is tested by this article on the case of Israel's public policy towards its Arab minority. The impact of this policy is evaluated by the application of geopolitical models. The paper finds that Israeli policies have changed geopolitical conditions, making them more susceptible to intercommunal conflict.
