The ethnic question has always been controversial. In the 1980s, some anthropologists thought to turn away from it in order to break up with the representations perceived as related to colonization. In the last decades, many researchers have contributed to deepen its theoretical approach, and it is now important to ponder the situation in connection with the new historical, postcolonial and post-socialist conditions, the generalization of the world market and that of the movement of people and goods, as well as the strengthening of diverse diasporas around the world. The contributions to this volume demonstrate that, far from being archaic, ethnic affiliations show a real capacity of adaptation in a context dominated by national entities. But ethnic identification, one of the modes of perception of otherness, should not be limited to minorities. Offering views from the inside of these affiliations, a variety of ethnographic fields are presented: migrations between Senegal and France, commodification of “Moroccan marriage”, practice of a Mahorais Islam, Asian diaspora in Paris, ethnic care in the hospital. This volume also brings new theoretical approaches opening up the “ethnic situation” to the dynamics of globalization, or differentiating it from concerns related to racism and discrimination.

This journal aims to publish both empirical and theoretical research work on different subjects which take into account international migration and inter-ethnic relationships. While it favors the geographical area of Europe, the journal is open to other areas and other migratory systems throughout the world. Read more...
