Houses have been described by anthropologists as a reflection of physical, social, economic and symbolic processes, which are shaping everyday norms, values and practices in different societies. In Azerbaijan, as in many other spatial contexts, the idea of a house is culturally considered to be the basis for constructing a family’s past and future. In terms of the past it embodies social belonging by rooting people in a specific place and time of origin. With regard to the future, the house, or any kind of dwelling in general, is commonly perceived as a prerequisite for young men to marry and to found a family. As usual, such ideals and values are good to think but far from being always consistent with people’s everyday experience and therefore a matter of constant negotiations. Thus, I argue that one important characteristic of houses is their “contextual ambiguity.” This ambiguous character manifests itself in the interplay between (1) normative social ideas and values attached to houses and (2) the everyday experiences, practices, challenges and conflicts that people accordingly cope with under wider socio-economic, political and historical circumstances. This talk focuses on some ambiguities related to housing in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku. Whereas under socialism urban housing was mainly provided, controlled and distributed by the state, it has now become a private responsibility and remains a major concern in people’s everyday life. My aim is, first, to provide an anthropological account on the dynamics of housing in a postsocialist, urban context in general. Second, I will relate these general issues with cases of Internally Displaced Persons, their housing situation and future trajectories.
