  • . It concludes that perceived ethnic threat, however, is generally at its lowest level in areas with only some ethnic minorities, which may leave some room for conflict or competition theories as well.

  • Ethnic community ; Ethnic composition ; Measurement ; Polarization ; Serbia ; Social geography ; Voivodina

  • concentrated by now on only the fragmentation (i.e. ‘Ethnic Diversity Index’), another type of diversity should be also defined: the phenomenon called polarization when two or maximum three ethnic groups with nearly equal population number are present. Using
  • the so-called ‘ethnic polarization index’ the paper emphasizes that the increase or decrease of diversity cannot be described as a two-dimensional process. - (AM)
