Ethnic and Racial Studies aims to be 'the leading journal for the analysis of the role of race, racism, ethnicity, migration and forms of ethno-nationalism'. In other words, the journal's coverage overlaps with that of other general migration journals, but also extends into themes such as race relations or national identity regardless of whether a migration context is part of the analysis.
