    International Conference on “Democracy, Ethnicity and the State,”
    Ra'anana, Israel, September 13–16, 2011

    The International Conference on “Democracy, Ethnicity and the State,” of Research Committee 14 (Politics and Ethnicity) of the International Political Science Association (IPSA) will take place at the Open University of Israel in Ra’anana, September 13–16, 2011.*
    Multi-ethnic states everywhere have to grapple with the problem of how to meet the challenge of ethno-cultural diversity in a democratic or democratizing state. The conference will focus on the following key question: in what sense does ethnic pluralism contribute to or hinder the process of democratization, democratic stability, and the development of a thick liberal democracy? The conference aims to deal with the ideological, institutional, legal, political, and sociological dimensions of the problem. The objective is to encourage a comparative analysis of the issue, comparing areas (e.g. Western Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East), states, and sub-state regions.
    Conference papers may deal with the accommodation of ethno-cultural minorities in democracies, with consociational arrangements, ethno-federalism, autonomy arrangements, ethnic parties, the role of ethnicity in elections, and with the operationalization of theories about multicultural democracy, ethnic democracy, and (partially democratic) ethnocracy.
    The conference language will be English. Researchers interested in participating are requested to submit a 500-word abstract of the proposed paper by May 15, 2011, as well as a short CV. This should be sent to the three members of the program committee:
    1)    Prof. Adrian Guelke, Queen’s University of Belfast,
    a.guelke@Queens-Belfast.AC.UK
    2)    Prof. Benyamin Neuberger, The Open University of Israel,
    bennyn@openu.ac.il
    3)    Dr Ilana Kaufman, The Open University of Israel,
    Ilanako@openu.ac.il

    Notification of acceptance will be sent at the end of June 2011, along with detailed information about the program and accommodation.** Invited papers should be submitted to the organizers by August 15, 2011.
    * The conference will start on Sept. 13 and conclude on Sept. 15. On Sept. 16 a bus tour to the Galilee will be organized for the participants.
    ** Accommodation will be in a hotel in Tel-Aviv, about 15 km from Ra’anana. There will be a shuttle service from the hotel to the venue of the conference.
