Mahatma Gandhi may never actually have said of colonized peoples that “first, the imperial authorities ignore you; then, they laugh you; then, they fight you; and then, you win”; but this observation nonetheless aptly fits Moscow’s evolving relationship with the Circassians. The Russian center had previously dismissed and derided this group, but now it finds itself compelled to both combat the Circassians in their North Caucasus homeland as well as attack member of their large diaspora in the Middle East and in Western countries, where support for that much-victimized nation is growing. That does not mean the Circassians are about to win. But it does suggest the Kremlin now fears they have a chance to assert their rights and national identity. As such, the Russian government has launched a new effort to prevent that outcome via repression and subversion. Read more

في 21 مايو/أيار 2007، وهو يوم يعتبره الشتات الشركسي يوم الذكرى الشركسي، استضافت مؤسسة جيمستاون مؤتمرا ليوم واحد بعنوان: الشركس: الماضي والحاضر والمستقبل. وشارك في هذا الحدث بعض الخبراء الرُّوَّاد في العالم بشؤون شمال القوقاز بما في ذلك عملاقان على هذا الصّعيد بول ب. هنزه (1924 = 2011) وكمال كربات (1923 – 2019). كان كلاهما من العلماء ذوي الرؤية وخبراء في السياسات حيث عملا مع مؤسسة جيمستاون لإبراز تاريخ الشركس. وفي ذكرى هنزه وكربات، واحتراما ليوم الذكرى الشركسي، تود مؤسسة جيمستاون أن تلفت انتباهكم إلى عملهم السابق ومساهماتهما في هذا المجال.

تتضمن مقاطع الفيديو أدناه مؤتمر مؤسسة جيمستاون لعام 2007 ”الشركس: الماضي والحاضر والمستقبل“، الذي استضافته بشكل مشترك مع المعهد الثقافي الشركسي. لقد كان الحدث عبارة عن تجمع فريد من نوعه، وكان له تميُّز كبير في ظهور كل من كربات وهنزه. ويمكن للمرء أن يرى كربات يناقش الهجرة الجماعية الشركسية إلى تركيا، ويقدم هنزه منظورًا تاريخيًا حول الشركس والإمبراطورية الروسية. تعتبر هذه الأفكار والتحليلات الفريدة في هذه المجموعة الصغيرة محل تقدير. تجد أدناه رابطًا لمقتطف من كتاب هنزا لعام 1996 ”حاجز شمال القوقاز: المقاومة الشركسية لروسيا“.

On May 21, 2007, a day regarded as Circassian Memorial Day by the Circassian Diaspora, the Jamestown Foundation hosted a one day conference entitled: The Circassians: Past, Present, and Future.  Participating in that event were some of the world’s leading experts on the North Caucasus – including two giants of the field – Paul B. Henze (1924-2011) and Kemal Karpat (1923-2019).   Both were visionary scholars and policy experts who worked with The Jamestown Foundation to elevate the history of the Circassians. In memory of Henze and Karpat, and in honor of the Circassian Memorial Day, Jamestown would like to draw your attention to their past work and contributions to the field. Read more
