These theoretical approaches will be illustrated through case studies, which may include: “troubles” in Northern Ireland; sovereignty movements in Quebec and Chechnya; ethnic violence in Indonesia, Nigeria, and the former Soviet bloc; indigenous people’s movements in Mexico; separatism, racism, and anti-immigrant violence in Europe; or others.
