This paper seeks greater understanding of theory and policy as related to ethnic conflict. Based primarily on insights from two workshops on the international politics of ethnic strife, the analysis unfolds in two stages. The first addresses the central issues related to theory, which include concept formation, general perspectives and specific ideas about cause and effect. The second section focuses on preventive peacekeeping, conflict prevention and policy implications.
