Duman, Y. (2016) Rojava: Bir Demokratik Özerklik Deneyimi / Rojava: An Experience of Democratic Autonomy. Fatih, İstanbul: İletişim Yayınları.
Rojava is always mentioned in the media and daily politics as a piece or a square on the geopolitical chessboard. The book you have in hand is based on a study done with the intention of understanding the inner world and social reality of Rojava. What kind of solutions do the autonomous governments implemented in Afrin, Kobanî and Jazîre cantons in Syria offer to socio-political, ethnic and religious conflicts? Yasin Duman is trying to answer this question. Autonomy practices in Rojava are different from autonomous governments based on negotiation and consensus or established after conflict. Rojava, An Experience of Democratic Autonomy examines the problems experienced in Rojava and the search for solutions to these problems in the context of nationalism, identity politics, assimilation, political struggle and representation, democracy, justice and freedom. It is a book that tells from the inside, accompanied by testimonies, an experience carried out in an environment of civil war, without the aim of declaring independence or establishing a nation-state.
