Example text

In the framework of a democratic society, ethnic preference policies must be justified to the dominant society; thus they are always vulnerable and usually contentious. Jenkins, like other studies (Horowitz, 1985: 653-80), shows that such policies have a mixed record. In Sri Lanka, the policy was designed to favour the Sinhalese ethnic majority. In its own terms it succeeded, but at the price of deepening the disaffection of the Tamil community and igniting an ethnic civil war whose end is not yet in sight.

The centralization of power seldom led to rational planning or implementation, nor did it promote a sense of common identity. On the contrary, it seemed to make both matters worse, and these developments were increasingly ascribed to the centralization of power. On the whole colonially devised or inspired federations were not distinguished by their longevity (Indonesia, Burma, the federation of East and West Pakistan, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Eritrea-Ethiopia). They were introduced at the terminal stages of decolonization, superimposed on centralized, bureaucratic systems, and it proved easy to claw back, de jure or de facto, regional powers.
