Cultural Geography Question...help!

I need help with this question can anyone help me. Thanks!
Sharp differences in demographic characteristics, such as natural increase, crude birth, and migration rates are seen among Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the Middle East and between Roman Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland. How might demographic differences affect future relationships among the groups in these two regions?

At the time of "the troubles" in Northern Ireland, Alan Bernstein was walking down a side street in Belfast when he was challenged by a bunch of youths.
"Are you a Protestant or a Catholic ?" one threatened.
" I'm Jewish", said Bernstein.
"But are you a Protestant Jew or a Catholic Jew ?" came the rejoinder.

Isn't tribalism a pain !

BTW We generally don't do homework but you need to think about classifying areas of "competition" such as political power, jobs, schools, water, land etc.

I've noticed that people who are around others not like them re cultural characteristics sometimes change their views, either very incrementally, or once in a while swiftly, or become more adamantly who they are - which is a kind of self reinforcement when faced with others' opinions. So, I'd research phrases such as "changing views occurring within a culture" or natural changes in opinions over time - or whatever you can think of that sort of fits the cultural geography question. I am guessing there are scholarly papers on this.
