Historical Collective Identity

  • Maxim Tabachnik
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter describes the significant impact of historically-constructed concepts of national identity on the politics of jus soli and territorial citizenship in general in Moldova, Azerbaijan and Georgia. It could be even argued that these concepts stretch back into pre-modern times. They testify to the degree that history matters greatly for the politics of both national identity and citizenship, even in such new states with practically no history of independent statehood, such as Moldova and Azerbaijan. In all three cases, it is clear that historical concepts of national identity weigh heavily on today’s politics of national identity and citizenship. The history of collective identity in Georgia predisposed it to the rejection of territorial nationalism and jus soli while the lack of differentiated ethnic consciousness in Moldova and Azerbaijan have led, directly or indirectly, to the opposite results – widely-accepted territorial concepts of the nation and unconditional jus soli.
