CALL FOR PAPERS
THE GLOBAL REVIEW OF ETHNOPOLITICS (www.ethnopolitics.org) is a new
authoritative peer-reviewed online journal that establishes 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 will continue to
be of great importance in the new millennium. The journal will give 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
The journal maintains a fair balance between theoretical analyses of
these matters 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 democratisation, 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 international
influences on ethnopolitics. Such influences include external diplomatic
or military intervention, as well as the increasing impact of
globalisation on ethnic identities and their political expressions.
Managed by a team of four editors in the United Kingdom and the United
States, the quality of each individual article and issue of the journal
is ensured through the support of an editorial board and an
international advisory board consisting of some of the most prolific
scholars in the field.
The journal is generously supported by grants from the Canadian Themis
Foundation, Inc., the Swiss-based International Relations and Security
Network, the Westminster Foundation for Democracy, and receives
additional support from the Specialist Group on Ethnic Politics of the
Political Studies Association of the UK.
