Book chapter

Sexual citizenship, nationalism and biopolitics in Putin’s Russia

P. 17-36.
Stella F., Nartova Nadya.

This chapter explores the relationship between sexuality and nationalism in the Russian context. We consider how restrictions on citizens’ sexual and reproductive rights are justified in the name of the national interest, and how family and demographic policies are deployed in the construction of ideals of nation and national belonging which are both sexualised and gendered.
