Migration and ethnicity are a very relevant and affirmed field in contemporary social research. New phenomena and processes in the world – globalization, the increasing spatial mobility of people, the delocalisation and relocalisation of culture – are all reasons for the growing scientific interest in issues such as migration, ethnicity and identity. The journal Migracijske i etničke teme (in English translation: "Migration and Ethnic Themes") offers researchers working on such themes the possibility to exchange ideas, participate in public debates and also take part in interdisciplinary dialogues.

The journal  Migracijske i etničke teme (Migration and Ethnic Themes) primarily publishes scientific articles on migration, migration-related issues and demographic changes, together with articles on different aspects of ethnicity and identity in any international, national or cross-national context. Contributions reflect the theoretical advances and empirical analyses and studies within a broad range of disciplinary approaches. Being an international journal, its sphere of interest truly covers the entire world: papers are published in Croatian and English, and the editorial board may also decide to publish some of them in other languages. The international character of the journal is determined both by the themes of published articles and by the international composition of authors, reviewers and members of the editorial board.

The journal primarily publishes scientific papers, but also other contributions of scientific or professional interest: essays, professional papers, book reviews, notes on scientific conferences, etc.


Full texts of articles are available at the web site of Hrcak – Portal of scientific journals of Croatia.


This journal provides open access to its complete content. Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies as the publisher supports Croatian Open Access Declaration.
