Local identities as a potential cause of man-made disasters
Strong local identities can also contribute to the causes of disasters like civil conflicts, terrorism or mass shootings. These man-made disasters evolve through the growth of nationalist sentiments, increasing marginalisation or ethnic disputes, for example. Understanding the role of local identities in the development of discord and violence is an important consideration for the prevention of these disasters.
