Call for papers / General Issue February 2024


We invite contributions in the form of research articles, commentaries, and book reviews covering (but not limited to) the following thematic areas:

  • Theoretical and methodological approaches to studying minority issues in Europe and beyond.
  • Comparative and in-depth studies of minority groups and regions, in particular using intersectional approaches.
  • Governance, political participation, social movements, and civic activism in ethnically diverse societies.
  • Conflict prevention and resolution, especially in minority populated regions. We particularly welcome contributions focusing on the impact of the war in Ukraine on minority groups in the region.
  • Critical evaluations of policies and developments within European institutions and their interactions with neighbouring regions.
  • Political and socio-economic inequalities affecting minority and racialised groups.
  • Impact of climate change and environmental harm on minority groups.
  • Sociolinguistics, particularly concerning minority/minoritized languages.

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and are subject to a swift but nonetheless rigorous peer-review process. This includes an initial screening by the editor and a double-blind review by at least two anonymous referees. The submission process runs via the Open Journal Systems (OJS) software.

Research articles should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words in length. Commentaries, reflecting on contemporary events, should not exceed 5,000 words. We also encourage the submission of book reviews, which should be no longer than 1,000 words. 

We welcome proposals for guest-edited Special Issues. For guidelines, visit the Guest Editors section on our website. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Editor at
