Example text

Conflicts do not simply result from a return to traditional values. They may have quite different causes, including the struggle for land, water or a share in the state’s exploitation machinery, as well as conflicts over public morals and cultural hegemony. Culture or Conflict? 25 But conflicts, however they arise and whatever they are about, turn violent, if there are no institutions within which they can be carried out by other means. Such unregulated conflicts (Dubiel 1992; Hirschman 1994) intensify the process of establishing unambiguous identities, the construction of friend and foe, of good and evil.

Although initially there may be room to compromise over some issues (such as access for an ethnic or religious group to civil service or recognition of a minority language), what is ultimately at stake is the “essence” of the collective identity, which engenders its own concrete signals and conflict scenarios on this basis. This results, for example, in Ayodhya being posited as the birthplace of a Hindu god as a way of entering into symbolic and real conflict with Muslims. The more energy and time that are invested in such an idea, the higher the cost in human life, the “holier” the idea becomes, and the more difficult deescalation becomes.
