The ALICE collaboration has measured the electroweak boson production at forward rapidity in Pb-Pb and p-Pb collisions at root S-NN = 5.02 TeV. Final results on the Z(0) boson production in Pb-Pb collisions are presented as a function of centrality and rapidity. Calculations based on free parton distribution functions overestimate the measurement up to 3 sigma. In addition, final results on W-+/- and Z(0) bosons production in p-Pb collisions at the same energy will be presented and discussed.
