An ISI rated journal, Ethnicities is fully peer-reviewed with an impressive international reputation and focus. As a genuinely cross-disciplinary journal centred on sociology and politics, Ethnicities provides the very best critical, interdisciplinary dialogue on questions of ethnicity, nationalism and related issues such as identity politics and minority rights.

Ethnicities has three broad aims, each of which adds a new and distinctive dimension to the academic analysis of ethnicity, nationalism, identity politics and minority rights.

A Journal of Sociology and Politics

Ethnicities aims to achieve a critical nexus between the disciplines of sociology and politics with respect to debates on ethnicity, nationalism and identity politics.

A Journal of Culture and Structure

Ethnicities aims to explore the complex interconnections between culture and socioeconomic structure with respect to the mobilisation of ethnicity, other social movements, and the implications of such mobilisation(s) for modern nation-states.

An International Journal

Ethnicities has a truly international reach, and welcomes discussion of any country or region of the world, as well as transnational and diasporic contexts.

"Reviewing the issues published so far, one cannot help but be impressed by the high quality of most submissions and the amount of ground they cover.This journal is essential reading for those teaching and reseraching in the general area of race, ethnicity, migration, nationalism and transnational studies." Gurharpal Singh - THES

"The journal Ethnicities is most welcome, adding to the journals which already exist in the area an interdisciplinary approach that explores the relationship between the empirical and the normative and that examines issues of ethnicity and nationalism in relation to both hegemonic majorities and racialized minorities." Nira Yuval-Davis

"This is a journal whose time has come: interdisciplinary, international, engaged but skeptical, Ethnicities is sure to advance thinking in this fragmented field, every day more vital, and yet not fully liberated from the intellectual blinders inherited from the past." Roger Waldinger

"A most welcome journal in the exciting and growing field of ethnicity and race. Edited by people drawn from different disciplines, it provides a rare academic space for cross-perspectival fertilisation." Bhikhu Parekh
