Title: EDUCATION TO ETA: THE PATH TO VIOLENCE IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY
Authors: Lulli, Cecilia Marie

Department: Politics
Class Year: 2015
Abstract: There is a significant presence of literature on ethnic conflict—why, when, and where it arises. Only in the last two decades, however, have scholars given the same attention to secessionism as a form of ethnic conflict distinct from others. There is still less literature on secession as a violent and/or politically-motivated movement. This thesis explores the Basque secessionist movement as a unique case, defined by violent, terrorist ETA activity and public support for secessionist political parties, such as Herri Batasuna. By examining the conflict-torn Basque Country in the context of the current explanations of secessionism, I hope to uncover a link between the presence of peace education and variation in a strong separatist sentiment.
