ASN Members - established scholars, aspiring doctoral candidates, NGO practitioners, government officials and policy analysts - advance understanding and knowledge of ethnicity, ethnic conflict and nationalism broadly defined. Reserve or renew your membership today!
One of the oldest and most diverse academic associations of its kind, ASN is devoted to the promotion of knowledge and understanding of complex processes of societal transformation taking place in Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, Russia, Ukraine, the Caucasus, and Eurasia.
ASN’s flagship publication, Nationalities Papers, was founded in 1972 and is a unique resource for scholarly analyses on the history and contemporary developments of ASN’s areas of focus.
Ethnopolitics, a leading journal on nationalism and ethnic conflict also is affiliated with the Association for the Study of Nationalities.
Since the 2017 ASN Convention, many participants have received emails inviting them to submit their ASN Convention papers to a journal for publication. Please be aware that such emails were sent without the approval or knowledge of the ASN. There is a large international industry of essentially fake journals that charge authors fees for “publishing” their papers online. Authors should only submit manuscripts to journals that have a reputable publisher and editorial board.

On March 28, the government of Hungary introduced a bill that, if passed, would effectively prevent the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest from operating in Hungary. CEU is a leading institution of higher education, which has played a pivotal role in providing world‐class learning and research opportunities to academic communities in Europe and worldwide. Thousands of masters and doctoral students from around the world have studied there, and as many faculty and visitors have connections to the university.
