The primary objective of this study was to investigate relations among individuals’ multiple identities, especially relations among ethnic, citizens, religious, and secular identifications both of members of the ethnically disadvantaged Kurdish group and of ethnically privileged Turks in the national context of Turkey. First, the aspects of various multiple identities and their relations to perceived discrimination were examined within the groups. Second, the differences between privileged (majority) Turks and the disadvantaged (minority) Kurd ethnic groups regarding the endorsement of different identities were examined in the current study. Understanding the notion of citizens’ identification with the nation state in more depth is another primary concern of the study. Besides, examining the relationship between multiple identities and national identification within Kurdish and Turkish citizens’ groups are also included in the study.
