Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies International Conference: 
‘Ethno-Politics and Intervention in a Globalized World’
27-30 June 2010
University of Exeter
 
Call for Papers
 
A cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary conference exploring the role of
ethnicity and nationalism in the 21st century
 
Conference convenor: Professor Gareth Stansfield
 
Hardly a day goes by without a political or social manifestation of
ethnicity crossing the headlines of international and national news. The
conflict situations in Darfur, Iraq and Palestine; new state formations
in the Balkans; issues of multiculturalism and security in Western
cities; and the re-interpretation of historical memories and myths in
places as far apart as Cornwall and Central Asia simultaneously point to
the salience of ethnicity as a critical factor in today's complex world. 
 
The Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies (EXCEPS) is an exciting
initiative which was established in 2007 following the award of a grant
by the Leverhulme Trust to the University of Exeter. EXCEPS examines the
role of ethnicity and nationalism in politics and conflict via a
multi-disciplinary approach that brings together academics and
practitioners from an array of fields. We will be holding our first
international conference from 27-30 June 2010.
 
The conference will be organized around seven sub-themes covering
different aspects of the theme of ‘Ethno-Politics and Intervention in a
Globalized World’. These sub-themes are: 
                         
Foreign Intervention in Ethnic and Ethno-National Conflicts 
Regional Security Organisations and the Regulation of Violent
Ethno-Political Conflict 
Culture and Memory in Reconciliation Processes
Questioning Ethno-Politics: Diasporic Political Cultures, Subjectivities
and Spaces
Contemporary Issues in the Middle East
Violent Radicalisation and Terrorism in the Ethno-Politicised World 
Mechanisms for Managing Ethnic Conflict: Secession, Autonomy, Elections
