16 These dynamics suggest several important caveats to Kaufmann’s prescription for the international community to promote partition as a means of resolving ethnic war. First, partition may obstruct some paths to peace that rely on alliances of factions within opposing ethnic groups. Second, partition may give rise to violence within one or more of the separated ethnic groups. Finally, partition itself often requires the use of force and invariably rips many people from their homes. Despite these potential downsides of partition – the forceful dislocation of peoples, obstruction of moderate inter-ethnic alliances, and fostering of new conflicts within separated groups – partition may be the lesser evil in cases where it can end otherwise insoluble, ethnic violence.
