Call for submissions to EYMI, Vol. 7 (2008)
The European Yearbook of Minority Issues is a peer-reviewed publication that provides a critical and timely review of contemporary developments in minority-majority relations in Europe at a high scholarly level. It combines analysis, commentary and documentation in relation to diversity and conflict management, international and domestic legal developments, as well as political and social changes and trends affecting minorities in Europe. Apart from providing a unique annual overview of minority issues for both scholars and practitioners in this field, the Yearbook will be an indispensable reference tool for libraries, research institutes as well as governments and international organizations.
Types of submission:
General articles are analyses at high scholarly level from all social sciences of general questions relating to the protection of minorities, preferably but not necessarily linked to developments, discussions or events that are taking place in the period under consideration, i.e. the year 2008. General articles are between 5.000 and 8.000 words long.
One focus in the forthcoming yearbook will be dedicated to the topic “Democracy and Minority Governance”. Authors are invited to submit contributions concerning the participation of minorities in democratic governance at national and in particular at regional and local level. Articles on economic participation of minorities are particularly welcome. Focus articles are between 5.000 and 8.000 words long.
Report on national developments:
Reports on national developments review developments of minority legislation and policy at domestic level in the period under consideration, i.e. in the year 2008. Authors are invited to submit English versions of discussed legislation. Reports are about 3.000 words long.
Book reviews give a report about the book and engage in a critical intellectual assessment of the book’s contents. Book reviews are between 600 and 1.500 words long.
