Contents Mapping out contested states -- Case study 1: Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus -- Case study 2: Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic -- Case study 3: Republic of Kosovo -- Towards a model of nation building in contested states : comparison and analysis
Summary This study provides an overview of current nation building processes in contested states. With a specific focus on the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, and Kosovo, original data is presented, collected in English in a single work for the first time. Viktoria Potapkina presents an analysis and comparison of contested states from an internal perspective, looking at the processes that help legitimize such entities from within and creating support for their ongoing existence. The work strives to fill a gap in the literature on contested states, as well as to contribute to the overall understanding of nation and state building, state formation, and sovereignty. It provides a new way of looking at the puzzle that contested states are, offering insight into why they still exist in their current forms
