However, examples from other Former Yugoslav Republics demonstrate how ethnic diversity is not a problem per se. When Yugoslavia dissolved, many predicted that Macedonia, with its sizeable Albanian population in a predominantly Slavic state, would soon fall into anarchy and civil war. According to Misha Glenny, ‘Macedonia was the most fragile of the new states to emerge from the former Yugoslavia, less secure even than Bosnia-Herzegovina’ (1999: 655). The fact that war broke out in the 1990s in Bosnia and not in Macedonia raises the question of whether the problem of multi-ethnic states is caused by their diversity or the choices made by political elites.
As Barbara Walter explains, as groups begin to disarm, they create an increasingly tense situation. The fewer arms they have, the more vulnerable they feel. The more vulnerable they feel, the more sensitive they become to possible violations. And the more sensitive the less likely they are to fulﬁll their own side of the bargain. (Walter 1999: 43–44) According to historical determinists, the dynamics of the security dilemma are so compelling as to make inter-ethnic coexistence impossible and the creation of mono-ethnic nation-states both inevitable and desirable.
Without a state, there can be no citizenship; without citizenship, there can be no democracy’ (1996: 19). Unless a state exists, elections cannot be held, governments cannot exercise the monopoly of legitimate force and citizens cannot have their rights protected by the rule of law. The more the residents of a territory identify with one national group, the more a state is likely to come into existence and to consolidate itself. In other words, the congruence between the demos (the ‘people’) and the polis (the political community where the people resides) contributes to the creation of a nation-state and constitutes a supportive condition for democratic consolidation (Linz and Stepan 1996: 25).
