Nations Abroad: Diaspora Politics and International Relations in the Former Soviet Union

Overview

The collapse of the Soviet state transformed internal administrative boundaries into international frontiers. Russians, Ukrainians, and other ethnic groups overnight became "nations abroad," communities separated from their ostensible homelands by shifting interstate borders. Since 1991, these new diasporas have had a powerful impact on minorities policy within the Soviet successor states, as well as on relations between the newly independent republics. Focusing on seven key cases - Jews, Armenians, Russians, ...

Overview

The collapse of the Soviet state transformed internal administrative boundaries into international frontiers. Russians, Ukrainians, and other ethnic groups overnight became "nations abroad," communities separated from their ostensible homelands by shifting interstate borders. Since 1991, these new diasporas have had a powerful impact on minorities policy within the Soviet successor states, as well as on relations between the newly independent republics. Focusing on seven key cases - Jews, Armenians, Russians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Poles, and Volga Tatars - this book offers unique insights into the power of diaspora politics within and between the new states of Eurasia. Political scientists, sociologists, and international relations experts will find this an indispensable guide to the complex interaction of nations and states in the post-Soviet world.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
With separate chapters on Russians, Jews, Armenians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Tatars, and Poles, contributions explore the web of relations between kin-states, host- states, and trans-border ethnic groups in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The focus is on the efforts of Soviet successor governments to buttress both their national identities and their national borders by reaching out to co-ethnic populations abroad. Two concerns emerge: the ways the new international boundaries are likely to remain points of contestation for years to come, and the world-wide phenomena of the increasingly permeable boundary between domestic politics and foreign policy.
