[Co-Ethnics as Unwanted Others: Exploring Identity and Conflict under Intra-Group Interaction]
Type of publication: Editor's Introduction
intra-ethnic conflicts after the fall of communism, state of the art in the field of co-ethnic migration, state-imposed images of national belonging, identity shifts under “ethnically privileged migration”, intra-group contacts and the terms to describe them
The introductory paper discusses the current state of research on co-ethnic conflicts brought about by the collapse of the USSR. It explores both Western and Russian-language academic literature, and demonstrates the conceptual and terminological difficulties in identifying the reasons for co-ethnic tensions. These difficulties are mostly connected with the essentialising of motivations for migration and of ethno-cultural difference between the co-ethnic groups.
