The Revue Européenne des Migrations Internationales (REMI) was launched in 1985 by Gildas Simon. It publishes both empirical and theoretical research works related to international migrations and interethnic relations. While Europe remains the spatial framework of reference, the journal is also open to other areas and migratory systems throughout the world.

The REMI delivers four issues per year and is available in full text on OpenEdition, with a restriction period of one year. Editions released prior to 2002 are online in their full version on the Persée website.

As part of the commercial circulation agreement between OpenEdition Center and, the latest editions of the journal are available via pay-per-view access on the Cairn portal and Cairn International.

The journal is edited by the University of Poitiers with the support of the INSHS of the CNRS. The steering committee has the responsibility of its realization and delegates this function to the director/s of the journal. The publishing director, who is also the legal representative of the journal, is the President of the University of Poitiers. The head office of the journal is located at the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme et de la Société (The Institute for Human and Social sciences) of Poitiers.

The REMI, as an interdisciplinary journal open to all social sciences, observes the diversity and evolution of the migratory systems, the complexity of international migrations, and of social dynamics. Its main purposes are:
- To approach the international migration studies in a multi- and interdisciplinary way. Standing at the crossroads of the different social sciences, such as Geography, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Law, Demography, History, etc., the REMI aims to provide a rich and diversified analysis of the phenomenon of migration.
- To present the perspective of European and international scholars on international migrations.
- To make the contents of the journal available to a wide range of readers (researchers, teachers, students, etc.), and to promote the accessibility of the journal to the anglophone public through the International Cairn platform.

Journal supported by the Institut des Sciences Humaines et Sociales (CNRS).

The ethnic question has always been controversial. In the 1980s, some anthropologists thought to turn away from it in order to break up with the representations perceived as related to colonization. In the last decades, many researchers have contributed to deepen its theoretical approach, and it is now important to ponder the situation in connection with the new historical, postcolonial and post-socialist conditions, the generalization of the world market and that of the movement of people and goods, as well as the strengthening of diverse diasporas around the world. The contributions to this volume demonstrate that, far from being archaic, ethnic affiliations show a real capacity of adaptation in a context dominated by national entities. But ethnic identification, one of the modes of perception of otherness, should not be limited to minorities. Offering views from the inside of these affiliations, a variety of ethnographic fields are presented: migrations between Senegal and France, commodification of “Moroccan marriage”, practice of a Mahorais Islam, Asian diaspora in Paris, ethnic care in the hospital. This volume also brings new theoretical approaches opening up the “ethnic situation” to the dynamics of globalization, or differentiating it from concerns related to racism and discrimination.
