Background

Recognised as research committee in 1976.

 

Objectives

 

Focuses on the politics of ethnicity construed very broadly both in terms of methodology and orientation, ranging from broadly historical and deeply descriptive to more theoretical and empirically rigorous approaches. It touches upon such related themes as nationalism and nation-building; the formation and mobilisation of collective identities; cultural pluralism; irredentism; separatism; and the search for autonomy.

It also touches upon questions of race, religion, language, immigration and citizenship, concerns that are reflected in the titles of committee colloquia which deal with specific topics but may include both country-specific case studies as well as comparative analyses.
