Nation states, nationalism and democracy in 19th and 20th century Europe
This article attempts to address some of the questions concerning the linkages between nations states and nationalism. More specifically, the article analyzes the relations between national phenomena and societal and political processes as well as the impact of nationalism upon states and their democratic institutions. At the same time, it focuses on the questions of both the rise of nationalism in Old-established States as well as the rise of nationalism and regionalism in the Periphery. The author undertakes a brief survey of the debates concerning States, nation-building, ethnicity modernization and democratization, which enables him to identify factors contributing to the rise of nationalism and regionalism. This typology, he concludes, allows for much needed distinctions to be drawn among various European cases, while indirectly suggesting desirable, alternative, and more pragmatic organization for European societies in the future which will render them capable of coping with multiple rather than exclusive identities.
