Diversity and discord: Ethnicity, horizontal inequalities and conflict in Ghana and Nigeria.

Abstract:
This introduction provides an overview of the special issue. The papers in this issue contribute to our understanding of the contrasting histories of Ghana and Nigeria. The papers confirm the importance of horizontal inequalities as a source of political instability and violent conflict, and show that they are particularly likely to lead to conflict where political and socioeconomic exclusion run in the same direction or are consistant.
