Abstract: Do secessionist/non-secessionist groups turn to violence for different reasons? Ethno-territorial conflicts are said to be more conflictual than non-territorial ethnic conflicts and to last longer. Why they erupt into violence is a question that has not been thoroughly resolved.Secessionist demands imply a strong, territorial connection, and almost without exception involve ethno-political groups who are united enough to plan for (or dream about) political independence from the host state. Whether or not groups who demand territorial secession turn to violence for other reasons than do non-secessionist groups is the central question of this paper. It has been suggested that territorial ethnic conflicts are more violent than non-territorial ethnic conflicts and that they tend to last longer because they are more difficult to resolve. Why they erupt into violence is a question that has not been thoroughly resolved.Focusing on ethno-territorial conflicts, this paper therefore explores a range of economic?as well as other?indicators and their influence on the magnitude of rebellion for secessionist and non-secessionist groups (using the Minorities At Risk Dataset), in order to determine the variation between factors that mobilize ethno-political groups to engage in violent conflict over territory.By looking specifically at economic grievances for both secessionist and non-secessionist groups one can conclude that groups are tolerant in terms of how much economic hardship they can take before they mobilize in support of violence. However, one important difference exist between these groups: secessionist groups seem much more susceptible to rebellion when the discrimination was political rather than economic. Further, for the secessionist groups, the strongest influence on conflict occurrence came from an economic grievance variable that did not really fit into the economics category, because it specifically addresses threats to land, jobs and resources. This emphasizes the fact that when we look for the causes of conflict in order to design strategies for management and resolution, we need to take a multi-dimensional and multi-disciplinary approach. For an ethno-political group whose goal is secession from the state and secession only, addressing overall economic grievances might not be sufficient, at least not in the long run.
