This paper contains the findings of research conducted for a two-credit Senior Individualized Project in the Department of Political Science. The topic studied is the relationship between regime stability (defined here as political, social and economic stability in a political entity) and the ability of certain minority groups to survive (taken here as the ability to integrate into the larger society while maintaining cultural identity) in the societal majority. More specifically, this project uses as case studies the Jewish community in Costa Rica compared with its counterpart in Nicaragua. The majority of the research was conducted in Costa Rica, taking advantage of the sources of information available in that country with regard to the political, social and economic history and the Jewish community.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
