      L et us start with the west. Europe, of course, invented the nation state: the principle of territorial sovereignty was agreed at the Treaty of Westphalia in The treaty made large-scale. nation state, which emerged out of the Treaty of Westphalia signed in , was to create culturally homogeneous polities. Nation-building in Western Europe, the cradle of the nation state, was an exercise in the destruction of diversity; the weaker and smaller nations within the polity were denied their identity. In contrast.

    This chapter addresses how liberal nationalist theorists have constructed an argument to the effect that sub-state national societies constitute a distinct category of group, distinguishable from both the majority of ‘dominant’ national society of the host state, and other ‘minority’ groups within the state. It explores the objective and subjective features of identity which liberal. Ethnic Diversity and the Nation State is invaluable reading for students and scholars of political science, history, sociology and European studies, and also for policy makers and others interested in minority rights and ethnic conflict regulation.

      Political wisdom holds that the political boundaries of a state necessarily coincide with a nation's perceived cultural boundaries. Today, the sociocultural diversity of many polities renders this understanding obsolete. This volume provides the framework for the state-nation, a new paradigm that addresses the need within democratic nations to accommodate distinct ethnic and.

This is an interesting book, advocating the creation of great, diverse teams that can yield great results in the modern-day knowledge economy. Diversity, in this context, is a lot more than ensuring a mix of ethnicities and cultures and treating everybody equal.

That should be a given. This book explores a largely forgotten legacy of multicultural political thought and practice from within Eastern Europe and examines its relevance to post-Cold War debates on state and nationhood. Featuring a Preface by former UK Home Secretary Charles Clarke, it weaves theory and practice to challenge established understandings of the nation state.

Based on extensive archival research in Estonia, Latvia, Germany, Russia, as well as the League of Nations Archive in Geneva, this book explores this neglected multicultural legacy and.

How diversity challenges the nation state. Where this homeland is free from foreign subjugation it typically takes the form of a nation state.

The Nation State: An Essay Summary Summary A state is a territorial political community for which there is an independent organised Government. A nation state is a state whose primary loyalty is to a cultural self-identity, which we call a nation or nationality, and is now the predominant form of state organisation.

Our introduction of the term “state nation” is intended both to introduce a normative standard to which democracies in polities that appear highly diverse can aspire to, and to introduce a set of at least three observable empirical socio-political realities that a polity, if it is a state nation, will manifest.

The idea of this book dates back towhen we both were at Durham University. Since then, work on the book has taken place in different intellectual and organisational environments. We wish to single out the support of Durham’s School of Government and International Affairs.

This book is devoted to the study of the interplay between religious rules and State law. It explores how State recognition of religious rules can affect the degree of legal diversity that is available to citizens and why such recognition sometime results in more individual and collective freedom and sometime in a threat to equality of citizens before the law.

Diversity in society can be viewed from two perspectives, normative and descriptive, both of which define how we think, discuss, and live.

Normatively we are called to be responsible. This notion ideally depicts the vision of people of various backgrounds and beliefs living with an attitude of tolerance, respect, and the desire for justice. The belief that every state should be a nation reflects perhaps the most widely accepted normative vision of a modern democratic state, i.e.

the “nation state.” After the French Revolution, especially in the 19th century, many policies were devoted to creating a unitary nation state in France in which all French citizens had only one.

Hence, the classical model of a nation-state that has thdeveloped out of the Peace of Westphalia in the 17 century is becoming more and more misleading in a world in which minority nations demand recognition and autonomy.
