Temporal and Generational Impact on Identity, Home(Land) and Politics of Belonging among the Kurdish Diaspora
Minoo Alinia, Barzoo Eliassi
The purpose of this article is to examine the experiences of two generations among the Kurdish diaspora in Sweden: those who migrated as adults and those who were born and/or raised in Sweden. The focus will be on issues of identity, home(land) and politics of belonging with regard to generational and temporal aspects. We will argue that there are significant differences among the older and younger generations with regard to their experiences that demand different theoretical and analytical conceptualisations.
