A Comparative Qualitative Analysis of the International Activism of Ethnopolitical Groups in Europe

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


This paper introduces the European Survey of Ethnopolitical Groups and shows how it can systematically generalize the influences for ethnopolitical groups to advance their collective interests through transnational actions. The Turkish Cypriots in Cyprus, Russians in Estonia, and Romansh in Switzerland are compared, discussing how the factors of group salience, resources, as well as political opportunity structures at the international and domestic levels play roles in these groups' active international engagement or not.
