      From Power Sharing to Democracy
      Post-Conflict Institutions in Ethnically Divided Societies
      Edited by Sid Noel, Kings University College
      Post-conflict societies invariably experience great difficulty in
      making their new democratic power-sharing institutions work. In Northern
      Ireland, the system for power sharing prescribed in the Good Friday
      Agreement of 1998 has repeatedly broken down. In Bosnia-Herzegovina, the
      system prescribed under the Dayton Accord of 1995 depends for its survival
      on the presence of a substantial international peacekeeping force. From
      Power Sharing to Democracy examines the theoretical underpinnings of power
      sharing as a means of achieving sustainable democratic governance.
      Contributors examine key areas, including Afghanistan, Cyprus, Kosovo,
      Macedonia, and South Africa, where power-sharing constitutions and
      political institutions have been employed or proposed. They provide an
      in-depth exploration of consociationalism, under which the previously
      warring ethnic communities are guaranteed a proportionate share of
      political offices and protection of their vital interests, and federalism,
      which provides for substantial territorial autonomy in cases where the
      communities are territorially segregated.
