Hratch Tchilingirian, The ‘Other’ Citizens: Armenians in Turkey between Isolation and (Dis)Integration. London: Cambridge Partners, 2017.

Collective and individual trials and tribulations are constant realities for Armenians in Turkey since 1923. More than a century after the Armenian Genocide, anti-Armenian public rhetoric and misrepresentations are commonplace in print and broadcast media, among government officials, public figures, and the general public. State discrimination against the Armenian community and the non-Muslim minorities in Turkey is as old as the Republic and has been institutionalized and structured over the decades. Against this background, The ‘Other’ Citizens: Armenians in Turkey presents a discussion of the two main schools of thoughts within the Armenian community in Turkey and highlights several sociological concepts that are useful to the understanding and analysis of the Turkish state’s and society’s treatment of the Armenians.
