Forecast: The example of Azerbaijan indicates that as a geopolitical  project Kurdistan may well arise

ArmInfo. The example of Azerbaijan indicates that as a geopolitical project Kurdistan may well develop. Rachya Arzumanyan, an expert on military and national  security issues, expressed this opinion to ArmInfo. Director of the  Center for Strategic Studies "Ashkharh" (Stepanakert).

According to preliminary data, more than 95% of the population of  Iraqi Kurdistan voted for the independence of the region from Iraq at  the September 25 referendum. According to the official representative  of the Supreme Independent Electoral Commission for the elections and  referendum Shirvan Zarari, 3 million 305 thousand 925 people took  part in the voting. The final results of the referendum will be made  public within 72 hours after the voting ends.

"While arguing about the impossibility of referring to the Kurds as a  people, since there are dozens of tribes in academia, they are  certainly right." However, as a geopolitical project, Kurdistan has  very good prospects. "In the framework of this project, Kurdistan  will first appear and, accordingly, Kurdish nation, and then this  frame will begin to be filled with real content and meaning. 

Noting that in history it happened many times, the analyst points to  the formation of various Arab nations, pointing out as the most vivid  and successful example of this kind in recent centuries on the  Russian Empire and the USSR, for example, who created Azerbaijan.  Thus, the Azerbaijani people began to form from autochthonous Turkic  tribes only after the appearance of the geopolitical project  "Azerbaijan".  According to him, more or less this process took  shape, reflected in the Constitution of the USSR in 1936, where the  term "Azerbaijani people" first appears

"Of course, the process has not been completed yet, the Azerbaijanis  have big problems with identity, they are looking for roots of  national identity from Parthia and Caucasian Albania to Pan-Turkism  and Turks, but this process may well repeat in Kurdistan too,  especially if there are good designers By the way, this is not  Russia, which had good chances to take part in such a game,  "Arzumanyan summed up.

Утверждая о невозможности упоминать о курдах как о народе, поскольку речь идет о десятках племен, в академических кругах, безусловно, правы... Если человек делает суждения на основании академических изданий середины прошлого века, то его мнение мало чем интересно.
