SNM#10 is published

We are happy to announce that volume 10 of Studies on National Movements (SNM), NISE’s peer reviewed online scientific journal, is now published.

The articles included in this issue have all been attributed a Digital Object Identifyer (DOI), and so have articles of all previous SNM issues.

This important element will help SNM get better indexed in the relevant online searching engines, so articles and their authors reach a much broader public interested in nationalism and national movements in Europe.

Check out volume 10 HERE

and HERE all previous SNM issues.
