Abstract

Author(s): Filiz OBAN Asl? Fatma BURULDAY

This study searches for a historical and legal analysis of the status of Muslim-Turkish minority in Greece’s citizenship and identity politics. For this purpose, first of all it draws a conceptual framework with the notions of nation, nationalism and minorities. On this conceptual framework, from the perspective of modernist theories of nationalism it examines the historical evolution of Greek nationalism and rights of Muslim-Turkish minority in Western Thrace. The article argues that religious based ‘millet system’ in Ottoman period and applications of ‘reciprocity’ between Turkey and Greece have been effective in Greece’s identity and minority politics in the postLausanne Treaty nation-state period. Lastly, it is revealed that European Union harmonisation policies have made positive contributions in two states’ approaches to religious minorities.
