Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe

Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE) is a peer-reviewed electronic journal edited under the auspices of the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI). JEMIE is a multi-disciplinary journal which addresses minority issues across a broad range of studies, such as ethnopolitics, democratization, conflict management, good governance, participation, minority issues and minority rights. It is devoted to comparative analyses of current developments in minority-majority relations in the wider Europe. Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe seeks to publish critical analyses of policies and developments in European institutions and member states, their relations with the countries of the European neighbourhood and other immediate neighbours. We also welcome contributions on non-European perspectives on ethnopolitics in the wider Europe and on minority issues in Europe in a global context.

We seek to stimulate debates amongst academics, students and practitioners on issues of instability and integration encountered in the course of the democratic developments in the wider Europe. Our journal is particularly interested in stimulating debates between varied theoretical approaches; we also strongly encourage policy debates on topical issues that combine conceptual and empirical analyses. Within this broad framework the journal invites submissions in the following areas:

  • Theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of minority issues in Europe
  • Comparative and in-depth studies of minority groups and regions, especially in Central and South Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union
  • Governance, political participation and civic activism in the post-communist states 
  • Conflict prevention and resolution, crisis management and security in Europe, especially with the focus on minority populated regions.

Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe makes scholarly debate available to as wide an audience as possible, provides easy access to cutting-edge academic literature and creates a forum where young scholars and practitioners can exchange ideas.
