AT THE beginning of the new millennium, the fundamental political question is whether existing plural states would be able to with stand the dual onslaught of ethnic nationalism and global economic integration. While the challenge of global economic integration may ultimately prove fatal for the survival of plural societies in the long run, in the immediate future, the unravelling of plural states may occur as a result of the resurgence of ethno-nationalist sentiments and the outbreak of violent ethnic conflict. While all the major regions and sub-regions of the world (with minor exceptions) have experienced some form of ethnic nationalism and conflict, the situation prevailing in South Asia is particularly acute.
