Title The Basic Elements of a Systematic Theory of Ethnic Relations
Author(s) Rex, John
Date 2003
Editor(s) Povrzanovic Frykman, Maja
Swedish abstract
Offering a conceptual analysis, the paper demonstrates theoretical connections between the notions of primordiality and small-scale community; ethnies and ethnic nationalism; modern nation state and related forms of nationalism; the analysis of the structure of empires and colonial societies, and of the reconstitution of post-imperial societies; the concepts of economic and political migration and migrant ethnic mobilisation; the implications of national policy responses to migration; and, finally, the notion of multicultural societies. An overall general theory of nationalism and ethnicity, transcending the more specific theories which have been used in understanding small-scale communities, nations and transnational communities, is envisaged.
