Greek Homonationalism: Entanglement of Sexual Politics with Issues of Race and Nationalism in the Case of Lesbian and Gay Movements and Queer Activist Groups in Greece

Project description

Integrating LGBT migrants, refugees in Greece

During the recent refugee crisis, Greece received a considerable number of asylum seekers. Some of them made sexuality-based refugee claims. The rights movements of lesbian, gay and queer activists have an active role in international politics in general and in Greece in particular. The EU-funded HomoPolitics project will explore the criteria of inclusion or exclusion in the Greek lesbian, gay and queer rights movement. The project aims to explore the relationship between race, nationalism and sexual politics. It will offer an analysis of the efforts of integration of refugees and migrants belonging to sexual minorities.
