Guidelines for submission

Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE) welcomes contributions from practitioners, academics and students on all aspects of ethnopolitics and minority issues. Although some articles are commissioned, unsolicited articles are also welcome and potential authors are encouraged to contact the Editor.

The journal’s focus is on original research articles, however we are open to contributions providing:

Each article should be accompanied by a short abstract (100-200 words) and a note on author’s affiliation, address and contact details.
