Kurdish independence movement is in retreat.
Contributing factors for the withdrawal are the new outbreak
of the Kurdish war in Turkey, the structural weakening of
the autonomous region „Rojava“ and the setbacks in
Kurdistan. The referendum and military action in Iraq show
the reluctance of the Middle-Eastern ruling forces to accept
pluralism. The PKK has postmodern concepts of a postnation
state in a region requiring stable political structures more
than ever before. All these factors are part of a phase of
transition aiming at a new regional order, whose outlines
can’t be anticipated yet.

Ferhad Seyder, Professor of Political Science
for Kurdish Studies, University of Erfurt, wrote this book
together with his PhD Student and assistants.
