Nationalism, Statelessness and Reactive Identity formation among Kurdish youth in Sweden

Eliassi, Barzoo LU (2011) New Regional Perspectives For The Kurds
Abstract
This paper is engaged with the politics of belonging among Kurdish youth. It aims to discuss how Kurdish identity and subjectivity can be understood following Antonio Gramsci within practices of hegemony and the ways the subalternity of Kurds as a stateless people are produced in everyday life. I will use narrative accounts of young Kurdish men and women to discuss experiences of denial by dominant subjects and the jettisoned position they occupy as a stateless nation in the world of unequal nation-states and hierarchical citizenship.
