Ethnicity and Sustainable Development

Eslam Moradpour


Iran is a rich country with a high natural-cultural diversity which could be used in a suitable way for growth, development and preserving national security. Ethnic diversity is considered as one of these diversities. The objective in this research is to analyze the relationship between ethnicity and sustainable development. The research method is content analysis and the data collection was carried out through searching domestic and international databases and studying the papers related to the subject of this study, through researcher-made note-taking papers. Research findings suggest that despite the generally negative image perceived ofethnicities and the fact that sometimes they are considered as a fundamental threat to national integrity and maintaining national security, ethnicity could be viewed differently and be used as a prominent tool for development.
