The Kurds are the largest stateless nation in the contemporary world.

They live under the jurisdiction of four sovereign states, Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria, which deny their national identity and suppress its political and cultural manifestations.

The diversity of Kurdish societies that flows from this division has deprived the Kurds of ideological cohesion and political unity.

But although Kurdish movements have assumed different forms and pursued different strategic objectives, their resistance to imposed national identities is the fundamental cause of Kurdish rebellions.
