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...


ETHNICITY, NATIONALISM, AND CONFLICT IN THE SOUTH CAUCASUS(9.04.2015)

Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Conflict in the South Caucasus

The Soviet Union, which has two contradictory definitions (“Prison of Peoples” and “Free Association of Peoples”), is seen as the perpetrator of many ethnic and regional problems in Eurasia today. Its management of culture with numerous ethnic and religious elements and an ideological perspective that deflects criticism are the most important issues to focus on to understand the Soviet Union. The ideals imposed on social and cultural life by communist ideology – nationalism, religious movements, local conflicts and decomposition – tell the true story of the Soviet geography.Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Conflict in the South Caucasus, written by Ohannes Geukjian,...


INTERVIEW WITH PROF. ALEXANDER MURINSON BY FUAD SHAHBAZOV(6.10.2014)

Interview with Prof. Alexander Murinson by Fuad Shahbazov

Violence in the Middle East has intensified and drawn the attention of the global powers. That is why I want to discuss this topic with Professor of the Bar-Ilan University, Dr. Alexander Murinson. After the Arab Spring uprisings, the Middle East was threatened by chaos and anarchy, which is still ongoing in Iraq, Syria and Libya. While these high tensions in the Arab world have not subsided, there is a menace of a new regional war. Could the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS) precipitate it?A lot of confusion persists about the structure and leadership of the Islamic State of Iraq and Shams (ISIS) terrorist movement, currently known as the Islamic State (IS...

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? ...


DE-CHECHENISING THE II CAUCASUS EMIRATE: FROM ETHNONATIONAL SECESSIONISM TO ETHNORELIGIOUS IRREDENTISM(8.04.2014)

De-Chechenising the II Caucasus Emirate: from ethnonational secessionism to ethnoreligious irredentism

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. In the same video Kebekov claims that he was appointed to be the new leader of the irredentist group that aims to establish an Emirate uniting the North Caucasus under the Sharia law. The nomination of Kebekov opens a new chapter in the transformation of the movement from an ethnonational secessionist group to an ethnoreligious irredentist project.The Total Text: De-Chechenising the II Caucasus Emirate: from ethnonational secessionism to ethnoreligious irredentism...
