    Must Pluri-national Federations Fail?
    in Ethnopolitics , Volume 8, Issue 1 - Special Issue: Federalism, Regional Autonomy and Conflict, March ,  2009 ,  5-25
    This article questions the widely held assumption that pluri-national federations are likely to break down or break apart. It shows that the case against pluri-national federalism needs to be substantively qualified, and then outlines the conditions that facilitate successful pluri-national federations. The argument is preliminary in nature, but suggests a more balanced and nuanced account of the durability of pluri-national federations than is associated with either its critics or its arch-supporters.
