Spread mainly over four nation states spanning Asia Minor and the Middle East, including the Caucasus, the range of land known as greater Kurdistan has no fixed territory, and its exact dimensions, which have fluctuated with history as well the motivations of various groups, states and individual actors, are open to contention.1 The Kurds represent a distinct nation of peoples, sharing a common culture and language. Although there exists no monolithic Kurdish identity, and Kurdish language varies from region to region, the people that call themselves Kurds share a culture distinct from that of their surrounding neighbours.2
