Abstract

Territorially scattered or dispersed minorities have been representing certain realities of political geography, therefore the risk of ethnic or religious conflicts due to rapid globalization and cosmopolitanism tendencies demands a search for new conflict-reducing mechanisms. The Old Believers’ community of Latvia, an ethnic-denominational group within the Russian ethnos, presents a sustainable form of the country’s political, ethnic, cultural, and religious landscape. Latgale, the south-eastern part of Latvia, has the greatest Old Believers’ group residing outside Russia. The aim of the research is to investigate the Old Believers’ community in Latgale region as a model for settling ethnic conflicts, focusing on the exploration of their life experience and oral testimonies by applying cultural-historical, biographical, descriptive methods and qualitative data analysis.
