Ethnopolitics is a journal of the Association for the Study of Nationalities and the Specialist Group on Ethnopolitics.
Ethnopolitics is an authoritative peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for serious debate and exchange on important issues that have had a decisive impact during the last decades of the 20th century and continue to be of great importance in the new millennium. The journal represents work by both established and younger researchers and analysts from academic and practitioner backgrounds. It presents 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 covers all geographic areas and maintains a fair balance between theoretical analyses and case studies both of a comparative and singular nature. 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 also is 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.
