Abstract [en]

Today, many diasporan populations – residing in Western societies – have created considerable civil society structures that function not only as a substantial means of integration in their residing societies, but also as genuine transnational institutions that aim, in one way or another, to affect the politics of their former homelands, especially in the direction of democracy, promotion of human rights and peace settlement with nonviolent means. In this respect, the Kurdish diaspora in Sweden Appearing as an instance of global governance and an arena of transborder citizenship, the case of diasporan Kurds in Sweden and their transnational relations activities can be considered as a relevant and illustrative empirical contour.
