The Ethnopolitics Specialist Group is a multidisciplinary, international network of academics and practitioners with an interest in ethnic politics, and especially ethnic conflict and its management. The group convenes panels and workshops in a variety of academic and policy settings.


The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”


Convenors can view the SG Handbook here.
