Our research committee has currently more than 1500 members from academia, political and public life. It offers two options for membership, depending on whether you are a member of IPSA or not. To apply for membership please fill in the form below.

IPSA members

This option is useful for IPSA members who are interested in the RC14's agenda and want to participate in its IPSA activities, including organization of panels for IPSA World Congresses.

To do so, you need to register and pay the membership fees determined by IPSA ( There is a significant discount now for members coming from the countries of the "Global South" (

IPSA non-members

Members of national political science or other associations collaborating with IPSA are welcome to join RC14. This option is especially useful for members of national political science associations interested in issues of ethnic conflict, nationalism and ethnopolitical mobilisation, but unwilling to commit themselves fully to IPSA activities. There is no registration fee. You will be informed about RC14 activities, and you will be able to participate in events conducted outside of the general framework of IPSA. You will have to join IPSA in order to participate in events organized by IPSA, including World Congresses or associated activities.

We encourage all our members to join the RC14 mailing list Please send an email containing SUBSCRIBE ETHNOPOLITICS to LISTSERV@JISCMAIL.AC.UK and you will receive all information on future events from there.
