Volume 14, Issue 4, 2015 of the Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE) is now online. The Issue marks 15 years since the JEMIE was established as the flagship academic publication of the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI).
Volume 14, Issue 4, 2015 marks 15 year anniversary of the of the Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe (JEMIE), along with the 20 year anniversary of the ECMI. To celebrate this, , the Volume is looking back at the publication history and remembering some of the topics and articles published here, while at the same time reflecting on some of the subjects and topics that could potentially be tackled in the journal in the future.
The Issue features five articles selected from different Volumes of JEMIE throughout its history. “Selecting these articles from the almost 200 that were published over the last 15 years was no easy task; deciding on which articles and topics should be included here meant reflecting on what topics were of most interest to our readership, and which articles provided the most original and relevant analyses” – notes Dr. Andreea Carstocea (JEMIE Editor) in the introductory part of the Issue. In the end, the selection was made depending on the number of quotations the articles generated. Coincidentally, all of them focus on the same topic, namely: minority rights in the context of the European Union enlargement: “This demonstrates on the one hand a high interest in the rights of national minorities in Eastern Europe, and, on the other, in the role of the European Union in the process of developing adequate systems of minority protection in these countries”, adds Dr. Carstocea.
