Clivages démographiques dans l’espace eurasiatique. Etude de cas: la population russe/les populations turques

Florin-Bogdan Suciu, Ionel Muntele


This demarche advance one analysis of the spatial differentiations issued about the demographical evolution of the Turkish populations and the population of the Russian Federation. This comparative demarche started of the analysis of the spatial distribution of the Turkish peoples and continued with the study of the demographical differential existing between the Russians and the Turkish peoples. The analysis focused the origin and the evolution of this differential. The statistical series processed relates to a long period (1970 - 2008) and demonstred the existence of a coherents types of the demographical evolution which dissociate the two ethnical categories of population. Is one of the most importants demographical clivages from the Eurasia. His importance it’s so much greatest in the geopolitical contexte of the concerned areas and along the evidence of a verry complicated distribution of these populations. The future of the relationships between the Russian Federation and the Turkish states is contradictory, considering the absence of the claimed unity of the last states, but the weight increase of these populations in the Russian territory, including the recently economical migration, may be change the situation.
