Post-Soviet Diaspora-Building Processes and the Transnationalization of the Politics of Memory (2013-2014)


In the last two decades ethnic Azeris living in USA, EU and CIS countries started to organize into a united ethno-national diaspora,
with political, ideological and also financial support from the political leadership of the Azerbaijani Republic. A major component of the process of construction of diaspora was the creation by ethnic activists of a large number of diaspora organizations. The Azerbaijani political regime pursues various goals in its aspiration to influence the activity of diaspora organizations and networks. Special place in the policy is given to the holding of collective events on the occasion of various memorable dates and symbolic practices of interstate monument swaps.

Keywords: diaspora, transnationalism, commemoration, Azerbaijani diaspora
