CfP: Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe
The Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE), the flagship journal of the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI), invites research articles, commentaries, and book reviews from practitioners, academics, and students on all aspects of ethnopolitics and minority issues.
JEMIE welcomes contributions that cover a wide range of topics, including:
- 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.
- Socio-economic inequalities affecting ethnic groups, including intersectional perspectives.
- Conflict prevention and resolution, especially with focus on minority populated regions. We particularly welcome contributions focusing on the impact of the war in Ukraine on minority groups in the region.
- Critical analyses of developments and policies in European institutions and their member states, their relations with the European neighborhood broadly understood, and other immediate neighbors.
- Impact of climate change and environmental harm on minority groups.
- Sociolinguistics, in the context of minority / minoritized languages.
- Non-European perspectives on minority issues and minority issues in a global context.
JEMIE is a peer-reviewed electronic open-access journal that particularly seeks to publish critical analyses of developments and policies in European institutions and their member states, their relations with the European neighborhood broadly understood, and other immediate neighbors. The journal also welcomes contributions on non-European perspectives on minority issues and minority issues in Europe in a global context.
All contributions undergo a swift but nonetheless rigorous peer-review process, based on initial editor screening and double-blind review by a minimum of two anonymous referees. The submission process runs via the Open Journal Systems (OJS) software. Regarding indexing and abstracting, JEMIE is now listed under Scopus. It is also listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH+), as well as several others. These ensure that all published articles are widely accessible and discoverable.
Research articles should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words. Commentaries reflecting on contemporary events should be no longer than 5,000 words. Book reviews of up to 1,000 words are very welcome. We also accept proposals for guest-edited Special Issues; please contact the editors directly for details and deadlines.

The next deadline for submissions is July 15, 2023.
