Dissertation: "Reimagining the Nation and Its State: Environmental Movements and Conflicts Over Development in Turkey"

Nejat investigates issues of nationalism, identity, domination, and resistance among Kurdish migrants in urban areas, particularly Istanbul. His 1993 involvement in an anti-violence group there revealed how violence is legitimized through institutional practices structuring ethnic, national, religious, and gendered identities. He now explores questions of domination and the politics of identity.
