The Rise of Nationalism (Part 3): Turkey and Russia

photo"The NYC Political Forum"

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 Parts One and Two, we'll explore the current political climate and the "nationalistic fervor" enveloping in Turkey and Russia, including the following:

• Nationalism fueled by "revisionist" history.

• A "nostalgic" sense of nationalism. 

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

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

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