Jenseits von Grenzen: Staatsbürgerschaft und Identität in Kaukasien und der Türkei (PD Dr. Lale Yalçın-Heckmann)

SummaryThe Caucasus has too often been reduced to ethno-nationalist conflicts. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology analyse how civil, political, and social components interact and how citizenship is compared between historical and contemporary notions and practices. Social citizenship continues to be relevant, especially for citizens who are detrimentally affected by migration, whether forced or voluntary.
