Identity conflicts are among the most difficult to deal with because they touch upon emotional values dear to every collectivity. This chapter discusses the three aspects of identity and identity conflicts, the external way to approach internal conflicts, and the mediation efforts to deal with these conflicts. At the end, I discuss the problematic and chances to resolve internal ethnic conflicts by external intervention and the conditions needed to resolve them.
