JEMIE - Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe 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 analysing current developments in minority-majority relations in the wider Europe, and stimulating further debate amongst academics, students and practitioners on issues of instability and integration that are hampering democratic development in Europe - both East and West.

Special Issue - The South Caucasus: Ethnopolitical Conflict and Prospects for Conflict Prevention

The South Caucasus is often overshadowed by the conflict in the north and neglected by outsiders through lack of informed debate and balanced analysis. Much of the region is, nevertheless, characterized by a situation of frozen conflicts and de facto mini-states, which, in stark comparison to South Eastern Europe have not awoken the interest of external actors. Although conflict is not uncommon to the South Caucasus - from Abkhazia to Nagorno Karabakh to South Ossetia - recent history nevertheless demonstrates that there is both the potential for conflict prevention as well as conflict, for accommodation as well as violent upheaval, especially where the involvement of international actors is concerned. This Special Focus aims to analyse these dynamics in more detail.
