This study seeks to increase the general understanding of (1) the types of circumstances that tend to contribute towards a state's inclination to commit genocide, and (2) how these circumstances manage to accomplish this task. It is suggested by this study that, in pluralized societies, the occurrence of total genocide depends largely on the level of legitimacy acquired by governing institutions and the acceptance of these institutions by the dominant elite.
