The Clash of Civilizations ten years later: The debate and the empirical findings on Huntington’s thesis - The article reviews recent contributions to the debate on the Clash of Civilizations by Samuel Huntington. The aim of the article is to present, in a schematic manner, how the debate on Huntington’s thesis has developed during the last decade, and what is its legacy on contemporary international relations theories. Two different methodological approaches to the clash of civilization are identified, namely the qualitative and quantitative one. Focusing on the latter, the article analyzes the findings of recent studies on internal and international conflicts which test empirically Huntington’s thesis. Finally, the article discusses some limits of Huntington’s work and points out its importance for the development of international relations thinking after the Cold War.
