This qualitative thesis is made through a case study of two intra state conflicts, the hindu-muslim conflict and one-sided conflict of the Maoists against the Indian government. The conclusion of the thesis finds that when inequalities occur a strong group belonging is crucial for a conflict to arise. (Less)
