I will give a brief introduction to the setup of Ewens sampling formula in the context of population genetics. The main aim will be to prove the formula using the combinatorial arguments of Griffiths/Lessard. Finally, if time permits, I explain Feller's construction to generate random permutations weighted by the number of their cycles.
