Title: CONFLICT OR COMPROMISE IN THE BALTIC STATES: WHAT DO THE PEOPLES THERE THINK?
 
Author: Richard Rose, CSPP & William Maley, U. of New South Wales
 
Description: There is diversity both within and between the population of the Baltic states. Estonia and Latvia have large minorities of Russian nationals, introduced as a consequence of Soviet occupation following the Second World War. Lithuania has a noteworthy minority of Russians and of Poles. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the independence of each of the three Baltic states raises questions about the status of Russian nationals resident there. While the existence of differences is beyond doubt, conflict is not, for differences can lead to compromise. This paper draws upon a unique survey of seven nationalities in the three Baltic states in order to see whether opinions of the different groups tend toward compromise or conflict. The answer is: compromise.
