3. Dr. Zlatko Šram (Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies) in his article Evaluating the Structure of Nationalistic Inclinations: Confirmatory Factor Analysis exlores whether national emotional attachment, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, the perception of threat posed by some ethnic minority groups, and national siege mentality are correlated to such a degree that they form a latent homogeneous and internally coherent construct of nationalistic inclinations.
4. Margret Carstens (Independent Researcher) in her article Sami land rights: the Anaya Report and the Nordic Sami Convention discusses developments concerning the legal position of the Sami People(s) in Norway, Sweden and Finland according to national and international law. The article explores land and self-determination rights of the Sami people in light of Anaya´s UN Report.

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 applicable to the wider global context are also welcome.
