Nation-building and Identities in Post-Soviet Societies : New Challenges for Social Sciences - image 1 of 1

About this item

In eight papers from a June 2012 international conference in Fribourg, Switzerland, social scientists from Europe and Central Asia explore the contribution of their fields to minority issues in multicultural post-socialist societies. Among their topics are social sciences and humanities in Central Asia: the relationship with Soviet heritage, academic standards, and ethnic dimensions; minority claims and multiculturalism in Russia: dilemmas of the national and regional agenda of the 2010s; religious minorities, the Christian Orthodox Church, and the state: rethinking processes of secularization and modernization in post-Soviet Georgia; and the new language policies in Kazakhstan and their impact on the status of languages: between unity management and diversity management.
