Ronald Grigor Suny – Provisional Stabilities: The Politics of Identities in Post-Soviet Eurasia

This article considers the impact of ethnic identity in Eurasia following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the emergence of fifteen nation-states that are home to a variety of dispersed ethnic communities. Using a constructivist approach to the study of ethnic and national conflicts, author holds that it is fallacious to assume that nations and states possess a single identity that drives their domestic and foreign policies.
