In this context, “elevated” means to cause greater attention to be called to someone. It is a metaphorical usage reflecting the fact that something that is held up high (elevated) is easier for people to see. As to “inter-communal,” the use here is vague (at least without more context. Maybe he is using “communal” in the sense of “distinct social or political groups within a country.” If so, then “inter-communal strife” would mean more anger/distrust/fighting between such groups.
