1.There are many identity traits that shape a person’s political interests and preferences. These include gender, religion, language, race, ethnicity, and national identity. Are these identities reconcilable with the State? How can a State, bureaucracy and all, most successfully manage the conflicting interests of different communities? What type of State has the best chance of this? What steps can be taken to promote stability and reduce the chances of conflict?
2. Based on our discussions in class and on the readings you’ve done so far, do you find a constructivist or essentialist understanding of ethnic and/or national identity more convincing? Why?
