The Legal Nature of Ethnic and Religious Conflicts


Nowadays the problem of legal regulation of ethnic and religious conflicts is becoming highly importantlike never before. It becomes the subject matter of research not only for domestic scientists but all over the world as well. This is also confirmed by the migration processes that embrace all continents. Due to the unresolved issues of particular nations and the peoples who live in different parts of the globe, these instances threaten the world law and order. There has been an increase of paramilitary extremist organizations advocating ideas of racial supremacy and national xenophobia. Imperfect legislation facilitates activities of these organizations as well as the lack of proper framework that would define the nature of ethnic and religious conflicts. This is due to the extreme complexity of the issues arising out of cases related to this category, as well as law enforcement personnel lacking sufficient knowledge, experience and practice and the insufficiency of their scientific and methodological support in this area. In order to confront these processes it is necessary to carry out legal analysis of religious and ethnic conflicts, to generalize global experience of their emergence and to make an overview of this experience. The author suggests using domestic and foreign experience as a solution.
