The Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics (JREP) is looking for submissions for a special issue on the role of racial and ethnic identities in shaping the politics of migration. We welcome work that explores how differing levels of governance and social categories are created to manage, control, and frame people on the move, from economic migrants, forced or displaced migrants, refugees, and asylees or any other categories of migrants. We are open to all methodological approaches and subjects can include, but are not limited to:

  • Critical examinations of race and/or ethnicity in the context of immigration & citizenship
  • How race or ethnicity shapes media coverage of immigration/migration/displacement
  • The role played by race or ethnicity in public opinion toward immigrants/migrants/refugees/asylum seekers
  • How race or ethnicity plays in classifications of people on the move
  • Local and federal policy responses to immigration/migration/displaced populations
  • How race/ethnicity impacts displacement dynamics, forced return, and border and externalization policies and practices
  • Comparative work on race & migration across international contexts
  • Political or social incorporation of racialized migrant/immigrant/refugee/asylee populations and the role of diaspora


Articles must be submitted to JREP by March 15, 2024 to be considered for the special issue.

Titles and Abstracts should be submitted by email directly to the guest editors before this deadline.

Details on how to submit your paper to JREP. Please note that all papers will be subject to peer review.
