Ethnopolitics is an authoritative peer-reviewed journal which provides a forum for serious debate and exchange on one of the phenomena that had a decisive impact during the last decades of the 20th century and continues to be of great importance in the new millennium. The journal gives a voice to established as well as younger researchers and analysts from academic as well as practitioner backgrounds. We publish original work of the highest quality in the field of ethnopolitics with methodological approaches covering mainly the disciplines of political science and international relations and taking primarily a contemporary, current affairs perspective.
Ethnopolitics maintains a fair balance between theoretical analyses and case studies both of comparative as well as singular nature, covering all geographic areas. The major focus is on the analysis, management, settlement, and prevention of ethnic conflicts, on minority rights, group identity, the intersection of identity group formations and politics, on minority and majority nationalisms in the context of transitions to democracy, and on the security and stability of states and regions as they are affected by any of the above issues. Particular attention is also devoted to the growing importance of the international dimension of ethnopolitics, including diplomatic and military interventions, and the increasing impact of globalisation on ethnic identities and their political expressions.
