Партийность как традиция

13-го ноября 2018 года состоялся очередной Семинар по разнообразию и развитию, в рамках которого с докладом "Partisanship as Tradition: Critical Junctures,  Collective Memory and Persistent Party Identification" выступил Арбатли Джемаль Эрэн, доцент, научный сотрудник Департамента теоретической экономики НИУ ВШЭ. Работа подготовлена в соавторстве с Давидом Гомцяном.

Аннотация доклада: Party loyalty can be motivated by various forces. Sometimes it is driven by instrumental motives and ideological leanings. At other times, it is better viewed as an expression of more enduring social and cultural identities transmitted across generations. We study the case of Sasun Armenians to illustrate this latter view. Our paper traces the origins of long-term party identification to a critical juncture in the local history of Sasun, a mountainous region of the Ottoman Empire located in Eastern Turkey. During the Great Massacres against Armenians at the end of the 19th century, Armenian residents of Sasun received armed support from the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) to defend their villages from military attacks. With the help of the ARF rebels, survivors of the Armenian Genocide (1915-1917) from Sasun region settled in various villages in modern-day Armenia. We show that the descendants of Sasun migrants strongly embrace the local legacy of their ancestral contact with the ARF. They are not only more likely to name their children after the ARF rebels who helped Sasun people in their armed struggle but they also are more likely to vote for the ARF today, although the party was not active in Armenia during the seven decades of the Soviet rule. 

Семинар организован совместно Международным центром изучения институтов и развития НИУ ВШЭ (МЦИИР) и Лабораторией исследования социальных отношений и многообразия общества РЭШ (ЛИСОМО РЭШ). Мероприятие проводится совместно с семинаром "Политическая экономика".
