Identity, migration and citizenship in the context of ‘Greece in crisis’

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since 1989 Greece appears as a destination country for immigrant populations from Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics, and, post-2005, from North Africa, South Asia and the Middle East. This has been argued to have contributed to the negotiation of identities, for both the ‘indigenous’ population and for the ‘immigrants’. This argument usually treats indigenous and immigrants as coherent, internally consistent and compact groups and draws on a notion of Greek identity as fixed and ethno-centric. According to this argument the dynamics of immigration contribute to a re-definition of identities and a re-negotiation of Greek national identity, as well as the search for alternative ways of ‘self’ and ‘other’ definition. In the past few years, the everydayness of Greece in crisis has been added to these dynamics.

The present paper explores the ways in which indigenous and non-indigenous populations in Greece construct the notion of citizen in the context of ‘Greece in crisis’. This is attempted by considering, on the one hand, the relationship between national identity and citizenship in Greece in its historical context and, on the other, by drawing on empirical data from semi-structured interviews with Greek citizens and non-citizens living in Greece. The interviews were analysed based on the premises of discursive psychology, focusing in particular on regularities in the arguments formulated and in the rhetorical strategies used by participants.
