CEPR's newest free discussion paper looks at the policy of redistricting areas along ethnic group lines and whether it can be used as a technique to quell ethnic divisions and create stability. 

Although the authors found that this policy can sometimes stabilise regions, their research also showed it can easily be undone with electoral democracy, ethnic favouritism and local government. Download for free:
