Ethnic Conflict: Studies in Nationality, Race, and Culture (Series)

The editors of this series invite submission of manuscripts that contribute significantly to the scholarship of contemporary ethnic conflicts anywhere in the world. In recent decades violent ethnic conflicts have occurred in far greater frequency than state-to-state violence. The impact of protracted ethnic conflicts is often long-lasting and devastating to many sectors of society. For all ethnic conflicts, at least one of the conflict parties is fighting to protect their affiliated identity group; in many cases the combatants are engaged in a ‘do-or-die’ struggle for survival. Yet, many other ethnic conflicts are slow-burning affairs without the wide-spread occurrence of physical violence, but with the potential for violence that could erupt under certain conditions. Moreover, for most ethnic conflicts, sense of ethnicity, broadly defined, is interlaced with a sense of other identity categories, such as nationality, race and culture.

The editors welcome manuscripts of original research on the pre-conditions, character, and consequences of ethnic-based conflicts: (a) the forms of violence associated with ethnic conflict, (b) the causal drivers of such violence, and (c) the means for violence-mitigation or prevention. Also suitable for this series are studies of ethnic conflict that address the historical intersections of race, religion, and nationalism as a prelude to violence. Some of these studies will accentuate the role of historic narratives of ethnicity in nation-building, nationalism, and state formation or transformation.
