Historically, religious minorities in the Middle East have
hardly been explored. Sometimes there are shifts as a result
of religious persecution by radical forces, such as the
Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq. This research conducts
a transnational analysis of the displacement of minorities
from Iraq by examining migratory movements to Austria. The
work is based on field research and documentary research in
Austria and Iraq and the study of ethnic displacement and
mobilization. This project includes an inquiry into how the
Iraqi minorities (Christian (Assyrian), Yazidi, Bahai and Shabak,
Jewish, Mandaen, Kakai) with different religious backgrounds
are accecpted in the host country.

Behnaz Hosseini is a researcher in religious
minorities and gender in the Middle East at the university
of Vienna.
