The Muslims of the Former Soviet Union in Exile
In the last 25 years, a significant portion of the intellectual elite from Muslim communities of the former Soviet Union has left their home countries for Europe, Turkey, and Ukraine, among other countries. This elite, many of whom can be considered political migrants, is now, together and separately, positioned to play important roles in determining the political directions of both the countries they have left and those in which they have settled. Denis Sokolov, Visiting Fellow with the CSIS Russia and Eurasia Program, will discuss his research into this group of emigres, their social and political activities, and the implications of this migration for the region and beyond.
This event is made possible by the generous support to the CSIS Russia and Eurasia program from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
