In post-imperial kin-states, the combination of authoritarian rule and selective historical memory in home-states of their kin-minorities leads to a dangerous brand of ethnic politics. Turkey has trouble defining both its kin societies in the Balkans and the policies directed at them. Nonetheless, Erdoğan's kin-state actions since his ruling party came into power in 2002 divide and polarize Balkan Turks and Muslims. In this respect, this article builds on how the religious-oriented and political polarization exported from the kin-state affects the national identity of its kin-minority in ethnically divided society, in the context of Rogers Brubaker's well-known triadic nexus. This article aims to take a brief look at the division and polarization of Balkan Turks and Muslims, especially in North Macedonia, which emerged as a result of Turkey’s transnational identity policies.
