The Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN) is an interdisciplinary student-led research association founded by research students and academics in 1990 at the London School of Economics & Political Science.

ASEN seeks to fulfil two broad objectives:

  • To facilitate and maintain an interdisciplinary, global network of researchers, academics and other scholars interested in ethnicity and nationalism; and
  • To stimulate, produce, and diffuse world-class research on ethnicity and nationalism.
