Solutions and Failures in Identity-based Conflicts: the Autonomy of Trentino - South Tyrol in Comparative Perspective
Starting from the Trentino – South Tyrol case study, this project seeks to identify a theoretical framework to explain the causes of and solutions to identity-, ethnic-, linguistic- and religious-based intra-state conflicts, with particular reference to frontier regions. Accordingly, the project analyzes the case of Trentino – South Tyrol, which emerged after the Second World War as a potential low-intensity conflict, and was resolved in 1972 following a number of institutional agreements between both sides, which granted broad autonomy to the region.
