nycpf's picture

This is a multi-part discussion series examining the ostensibly-sudden rise of nationalism in different parts of the world.

Building from themes that emerged from Part One, for Part Two, we'll explore the current political climate and the "nationalistic fervor" enveloping in China, India, and Pakistan, including the following:

• "Nationalism" as a political ideology, giving rise to "Ethno-Nationalism" and "religious-based" nationalism.

• The emergence of the "National Consciousness."

• How "Nationalism" spills over into overseas or extraterritorial military expansion.

• The difference between "populist nationalism" and "authoritarian nationalism."

INDIA and PAKISTAN, then and now:

This week also marks the 70th Anniversary of the Partition.


** For Parts Three and Four, we'll examine Nationalism in other parts of the world, including in Russia, Turkey, Latin America, and the U.S.

*** This discussion series will segue into an upcoming discussion on the historical roots of modern "nationalism," stemming out of the Treaty of Versailles and the prelude to World War Two.
