Ethnicity, Nationalism, & Migration Studies (ENMISA)

Welcome to ENMISA

We are scholars interested in a variety of issues related to Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Migration, and would like to develop better communications among people with similar interests.

We vary quite widely in our theoretical approaches, methodologies and empirical interests, but we share a common desire to work together on issues that are clearly becoming more important in both the domestic politics of many countries and in their international relations.
