The Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE) is a peer-reviewed electronic open access journal edited under the auspices of the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI). It is designed as a multi-disciplinary journal which addresses minority issues from a variety of perspectives, including ethnopolitics, democratization, conflict and diversity management, good governance, minority and human rights as well participation. It also covers comparative analyses of current developments in minority-majority relations in Europe and beyond. The Journal particularly seeks to publish critical analyses of developments and policies in European institutions and their member states, their relations with the European neighbourhood broadly understood and other immediate neighbours. We also welcome contributions on non-European perspectives on minority issues and on minority issues in Europe in a global context.
The aim of the journal is to stimulate debate among academics, practitioners, scholars of all levels and policymakers on issues of instability and integration encountered affecting minorities in the wider European context. Our journal is particularly interested in stimulating debates between varied theoretical but also empirical approaches. We also strongly encourage policy debates on topical issues that combine conceptual and practice-oriented analyses. Within this broad framework, the journal invites submission in the following non-exhaustive areas:
- Theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of minority issues in Europe and beyond
- Comparative and in-depth studies of minority groups and regions
- Governance, political participation and civic activism across Europe
- Conflict prevention and resolution, crisis management and security in Europe, especially with focus on minority populated regions
- Cultural and identity-based analyses of minority identity from a social science perspective
It is the ambition of JEMIE to make scholarly debate available to as wide an audience as possible, to provide easy access to cutting-edge academic literature and to create a forum where scholars of all levels and practitioners can exchange ideas.
