THE MESKHETIAN TURKS AT A CROSSROADS

Trier, Tom, and Andrei Khanzin (eds.) (2007).
The Meskhetian Turks at a Crossroads.
Integration, Repatriation or Resettlement?

Münster: LIT Verlag, 663 pp.

With a preface by Max van der Stoel

This book is the result of a comprehensive and pioneering research project, and offers innovative insights into the life of the Meskhetian Turks - an ethnic group collectively deported from Georgia by Stalin during World War II. The volume examines their integration in the countries where they now live, their understanding of home and belonging and their desire to return to Georgia. Apart from thoroughly documenting the current life of Meskhetian Turks, the research also identifies new approaches in finding solultions to the issue of Meskhetian Turk displacement.
This publication is the result of a research project on the Meskhetian Turks carried out by the European Centre for Minority Issues fom June 2004 to September 2006. ECMI thanks the Volkswagen Stiftung, which funded this research project and this volume within the framework of the research programme "Between Europe and the Orient-A Focus on Research and Higher Education in Central Asia and the Caucasus."
