There are three factors to put into consideration in assessing theory qualifications in explaining the existence of ethnic conflicts.
Contemporary accelerated globalisation gives ample cause for a paradigm shift in social analysis toward what might be called 'world system studies'. That said entrenched intellectual traditions and institutional forces exert substantial resistance to such a change.
This tendency therefore leans credence to the assertion of Aristotle the ace philosopher that man is inherently a social animal. The contemporary nation-state system is the product of a direct evolution of a poor reflection of the binding ties that crystallized these primitive social organizations; and of course with the resulting stream of nationalist waves blowing across all corners of the global landscape.
