Abstract:

This paper examines the conditions under which and reasons why citizens vote for violent rather than moderate ethno-nationalist political parties in divided.democracies. I draw upon an in-depth analysis of electoral support for the Sinn Fein party in Northern Ireland during the course of the Troubles (1969-2005). Using two new datasets for the 101 DEA and 26 LGD electoral districts, I find that a community's experience of violence in the period preceding the election is significantly and positively associated with Sinn Fein performance within the Nationalist party bloc.I Moreover, this relationship holds when controlling for economic grievances (e.g. Catholic unemployment rate) across districts and when looking within districts over time.
