This study analyzes the reasons for the relative lack of ethnopolitical
conflict in Ukraine after 1989. Starting from the assumption that such
conflict would have required higher levels of ethnic group mobilization,
the author utilizes a multifactor model to explain why such mobilization
remained extremely low in most cases. She reaches the conclusion that the
interplay of historical and international factors was in large part
responsible for the low mobilization levels.
