  • Nowadays political identity plays a major role in the determination of states' and non-states' priorities and security-seeking assumptions. It also intervenes in centralization and decentralization processes, in branding images and reputations, in transnational social movements as well as in responses to global crises. States spend more and more efforts to try to regulate identity groups' aspirations and requests both at national and international level. At the same time, the role of the State and non-state actors in shaping, manipulating, building identities is a continuous process that transcend the borders of the state, and creates new political actors, such as the diasporic and kin communities.

    The project aims to investigate and further problematize collective identities particularly in their transnational dimension: How actually are collective identities framed and performed? Who are the actors framing identities? What are the effects of overlapping of different identities?
