Abstract:

The paper develops a theory of “statehood effect” in new states – the process by which new, accidental, and “imperfect” statehood can constrain political actors from acting upon prior national identity conceptions (however strong) in the sphere of nation-building. Through a comparative study of citizenship policies in the post-Soviet Russia and the post-Soviet Ukraine the paper demonstrates how by the end of the 1990s the “statehood effect” came to drive citizenship policies in both states, resulting in the nation being officially defined by the territory of the state. The paper also explains variations in the timing and the nature of “statehood effect” in the two states.
