Relaunch of Specialist Group on Ethnic Politics of the
Political Studies Association of the UK


RELAUNCH OF SPECIALIST GROUP ON ETHNIC POLITICS OF THE POLITICAL
STUDIES ASSOCIATION OF THE UK
 
The Specialist Group on Ethnic Politics of the Political Studies
Association of the United Kingdom has been reconvened under the joint
chairmanship of Dr Karl Cordell, University of Plymouth, and Dr Stefan
Wolff, University of Bath.
 
Building on the successes of the group in the mid 1990s, its re-launch
now after a period of inactivity seeks to foster intellectually
stimulating debates among academics, students and practitioners on all
issues related to research, teaching, and policy-making in the broadly
defined field of ethnic politics.

The primary focus of the groups activities will be the re-emergence of
ethnic/religious nationalism in various regions across the globe. 
However, this should not serve either to narrow the focus of work, or
to relegate studies of other areas of interest to secondary status. 
The group also encourages the serious academic study of global issues
related to ethnic politics, such as nationalism and nation-building,
security studies, defence studies, political sociology, and
territorial politics.

In terms of audience and target membership, the group seeks to appeal
to Political Scientists in academia (including Postgraduates) as well
as to practitioners in our field, who have an interest in this sphere,
to researchers in the field from other disciplines, to research and
educational institutions, to governments, and to governmental and
non-governmental organisations worldwide.
