Facts: Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE)
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. JEMIE seeks to publish critical analyses of policies and developments in European institutions and member states, their relations with the countries of the European neighborhood and other immediate neighbors. Contributions on non-European perspectives on ethnopolitics in the wider Europe and on minority issues in Europe in a global context are also welcome.
