Conclusion: Contestations Within, Rather Than About, Nationalism

Abstract : The leitmotif of this book has been to explore how nationalism is contested. The overarching concern was to establish whether the main contestations that we find today are occurring within the ambit of nationalism, or whether they are, on balance, instead, contestations about nationalism. In order to examine this, the book has outlined three sets of developments, reflected under the headings of transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, and nationalist resurgence (mainly through right-wing populism). The first two, transnationalism and cosmopolitanism, offered the greatest prospects for a transition away from nationalism. (First lines)
