DORMANT SEPARATISM OR ETHNO-POLITICAL SMARTNESS? PROFILING THE KARAKALPAK ETHNONATIONAL AGENDA(25.10.2015)

Dormant separatism or ethno-political smartness? Profiling the Karakalpak ethnonational agenda

Tracing the KarakalpaksIt is a commonplace for analysts and academics to mention the artificiality of the five post-soviet Central Asia “stans”: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. And although that commonplace bears truth it must be perceived with caution since not all “stans” have the same degree of artificiality.In the aftermath of the Civil War between the Red and the White forces, Moscow was still threatened by separatist movements in Central Asia and in the Caucasus. The remnants of the I Caucasus Emirate, led by Uzun Haji, with its capital in Vedeno (Chechnya), still tormented Moscow but the most serious threat came from the Pan...


IN PURSUIT OF SANCTIONS OR FORGIVENESS!(28.07.2015)

In Pursuit of Sanctions or Forgiveness!

The field of international relations is a tricky one. Politics, diplomacy and self-interests determine the role and positioning of nations at international level. It is like a screenplay in which each and every country tries to self-maximize its interests through different acts. Of course this goes without saying that they vie out for strong regional influence, along with cultural, economic and technological exchange.States have divided themselves into different groups and have thus positioned themselves in an “us versus them logic” which has created rift in the common human understanding.

Is the Circassian Ethno political Game Over? Assessment of the Circassian Ethnopolitical Agenda post-Sochi Winter Olympics and May 21 campaigns

With the Sochi Winter Olympic Games concluded and almost two and half months after the May 21 celebration that marked the 150 years of the deportation of Circassians from its homeland in the North Caucasus to Turkey (and from there to other places across the globe) it is time to ask what is the next step for Circassian activists; or if there is a next step for Circassian activists.The Total Text: Is the Circassian Ethno political Game Over? ...

On 18th March 2014, Aliasaskhab Kebekov confirmed the death of Dokka Umarov, leader of the II Caucasus Emirate established by him in the end of October 2007.
