Management and mismanagement of diversity

Here is something worth reading Management and mismanagement of diversity
The case of ethnic conflict and state-building in the Arab World

The piece's conclusion is below:
"In conclusion, the way out of the present dilemmas of all Arab states, but especially those with marked ethnic diversity, is a triangular formula of civil society, democracy, and federalism. This strength would be further enhanced by regional peace and economic cooperation. In the mid 1990s, all the ingredients are present. It only needs political imagination and the political will of new leadership to skilfully engineer those ingredients together into a harmonious regional mosaic."

Well that sure looks like what the coalition has tried to kickstart with their ousting of Saddam's regime.
