With the Support of The Open Society Sammy Smooha and Priit Järve edited The Fate of Ethnic Democracy in Post-Communist Europe (ECMI-LGI Series on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues, Vol. III, Budapest 2005) in the .pdf (over 260 pages).
The break-up of the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia has unleashed two grand forces: a drive for democratization on Western lines and the resurgence of ethnonational conflicts. It is anticipated that these post-Communist states may develop a new regime that combines institutionalized dominance of an ethnic majority with democratic rights for all. This mixed, non-Western type of system is amenable for analysis by Sammy Smooha's model of ethnic democracy, based on Israel/i>.
In this volume, the model is applied by country specialists to Estonia, Latvia, Georgia, Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo and Bosnia-Herzegovina. From these seven case studies, Smooha draws comparisons and conclusions about the model and regimes in post-Communist Europe.
