This study examines the role of the Kurds in a rapidly changing Middle East. Although the Kurdish movements in all four parts of Greater Kurdistan have been demanding the right of self-determination, they differ vastly in their interpretation of the political embodiment of that right as well as its achievement on the ground. This study analyzes the rivalry and interdependence among the four parts of Kurdistan as well as the dynamics of their relations with regional countries and the international community. Now, with the entire region in a state of flux, the big question is whether or not the Kurds will manage to reshape the map of the Middle East to fulfill their dream for a state or autonomous existence of their own.
