Consociational democracy is often proposed as a non-territorial strategy to accomodate tensions between ethnic groups in the framework of a democratic regime. This multi-ethnic province (Alto Adige) is presented as an example of a regional ethnic conflict solved by the application of a consociational strategy. The inter-ethnic situation has improved after introduction of an autonomy statute. The analysis shows that the autonomous statute has contributed to the transformation into a regional society with the principle features of a consociational democracy
