One of the important issues in the process of development is the management of ethnicconflicts. Development cannot be achieved unless ethnic conflicts are resolved. Ifminorities' rights are not recognized, the process of development may be interrupted bypolitical violence. This article attempts to offer an effective model of ethnic- conflictmanagement on the basis of various countries' experiences. The political groups shapedaround ethnicity are the main focus of this article. The relationship between the state andthese groups are fully examined. The author argues that the recognition of minorities'rights, the security of the political entity, democratization, and civil and political libertiesare the main components of an efficient management of ethnic differences.
