dc.description.abstract Motivated by the theoretical model introduced by Esteban and Ray (1999), we propose that polarization of education among the population of a country can affect the incidence of civil wars. Using an index which considers the ordinality of education we show evidence supporting a positive correlation between high polarization and the incidence of civil wars. This conclusion remains robust after the inclusion of fixed effects and instrumental variables, indicating the potential existence of a causal relationship. en
