Dislocated Democracies in the Caucasus

The Caucasus is a region of constant movement. Bearing in mind current trends in human migration, this roundtable considers how such dislocations affect the social and political reception of democracy. The conversation will explore how Caucasian exiles, refugees, migrant laborers, or cosmopolitan intellectuals navigated, contested, or reinforced democratic ideas and processes over the past century. How do memories of democratic pasts – such as the short-lived Caucasian republics of 1918–1921 – color conceptions of nationhood and belonging both among the Caucasian states and their diasporas?
