ETHNOPOLITICS is an authoritative peer-reviewed journal published by Routledge. It has established a forum for serious debate and exchange on one of the phenomena that had a decisive impact during the last decades of the 20th century and will continue to be of great importance in the new millennium. The journal gives a voice to established and younger researchers and analysts from academic as well as practitioner backgrounds. We publish original work of the highest quality in the field of ethnopolitics with methodological approaches covering mainly the disciplines of political science and international relations and taking primarily a contemporary, current affairs perspective.

on minority and majority nationalisms in the context of democratisation,
and on the security and stability of states and regions as they are

to the growing importance of international influences on ethnopolitics.
Such influences include external diplomatic or military intervention,
as well as the increasing impact of globalisation on ethnic identities
and their political expressions.
