Nationalism

Concept and Criteria


Overview

  • Essentially an Emotive force

  • Difficult to define in rational terms

  • Origins in Enlightenment Ideas of Social Contract Theory & Popular Representation

  • Developed as Political Concept in French Revolution and Napoleonic era

  • Deeply linked to concept of State and of course Nation


Defining the Nation:

Some key criteria though not all (or even any!) necessarily apply –

Common History

Geographical Space

Common Ethnicity

Shared Language


Plus also (again to some degree)

Common Religious Beliefs

External, International Recognition

And perhaps above all:

Shared sense of Belonging

e.g. Benedict Anderson’s concept of :

An ‘Imagined Community’


Modern Nationalism:

The Influence of French Revolution

‘Nation=State=People’
