Race and Racism in Eastern Europe: Becoming White, Becoming Western

2018 (English)In: Relating Worlds of Racism: Dehumanisation, Belonging, and the Normativity of European Whiteness / [ed] Essed, P., Farquharson, K., Pillay, K., White, E.J., Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, p. 113-139Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Law and Zakharov examine the formation and legacy of Russian racialisation and anti-Roma racism in a number of states including Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Romania. They then examine racialisation in a variety of post-Soviet regimes including the Baltic states, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and the Southern Caucasus. The East European ‘search for race’ and the striving to ‘attain whiteness’, can be understood as attempts to rediscover the privileged whiteness that has been partly lost during the socialist past. Finally, they confirm the need to recognise polyracism, and give a less one-sided account of the process of racial Europeanisation which privileges Western Europe and denies the agency of Eastern European states in this process.
