by Razmig B. Shirinian, Ph.D.

Politics of Transnational Minorities: Social Welfare and Human Settlements identifies international regimes or international collaborative arrangements in the issue areas of social welfare and human settlements. It then examines how and to what extent transnational minorities affect international regimes in the two areas and how these regimes respond.

The study contends that international regimes in social welfare and human settlements are normative and implicit in character and comply with the expectations of nonstate and transnational minorities. For this purpose, the relationships between transnational minorities such as the Kurds, the Palestinians, and the Armenians in diaspora and the two regimes are discussed, making this a comprehensive study.
