This paper utilizes quantitative methods to examine the dynamics of ethnoregional protest in contemporary democratic states. The paper tests hypotheses relating the incidence of ethnoregional protest to the extent of regional autonomy, spatial disparity and ethnic demography. The findings suggest that relatively wealthy regions and those that are highly ethnically distinct from the rest of the country are more likely to experience ethnic protest, but that the relationship between regional autonomy and protest activity is more complex. Shared-rule features of regional autonomy have a straightforward and substantial dampening effect on the likelihood of ethnic protest, but self-rule features of regional autonomy can be both protest inducing—particularly in contexts of high ethnic distinctiveness and relatively low regional wealth—and protest mitigating, particularly in relatively wealthy regions.
