How far are democracies able to handle differences between various ethnic groups?

Answer:

  • Democracies are able to accommodate various social divisions.
  • These usually develop a-procedure to reduce the possibility of tension between ethnic groups as they become explosive or violent sometimes.
  • Democracy is best suited to reduce this outcome.
  • Non-democratic regimes often turn a blind eye to or suppress social differences.
  • Ability to handle social differences, divisions and conflicts is, thus, a definite plus point of democratic regimes.
