The New Politics of Victimhood in Post-Socialist Europe

Project description

How victimhood features in politics in Central and Southeast Europe

The notion of victimhood is central in politics. The sense of being victimised by injustice, wrongdoing and crimes is leveraged by political leaders and the public across the world to evoke emotions and loyalties. The EU-funded VICTIMEUR project will focus on the political constructions of victimhood in post-socialist Central and Southeast Europe where sources of victimhood are ample and diverse. It will study how victimhood has featured in politics and political competition of post-socialist Europe over the past 20 years, and its role in the region's contemporary politics, and introduce a novel understanding of social and political victimhood linked to collective and individual grievances that go beyond demands and identities of direct victims of communism, conflict and injustice.
