The Russian Annexation of Crimea in 2014

In March 2014, after the hastily organized pro-Russian referendum, Crimea became part of the Russian Federation. This research project looks at the historical and cultural preconditions of the secession, the political interests of the local actors and the consequences of the Russian annexation of the peninsula for the population, including Crimean Tatars.
