Abstract [en]

This study explores the possibility of a micro level explanation for the cause of the variation

of nationalistic attitudes. Through Classical Twin Design the aim is to find out if nationalistic

attitudes are partly genetically transmitted. Another intention with this study is to deepen the

theoretical understanding of the concept nationalism as well as the fruitfulness of

behavioural genetics in understanding nationalistic attitudes. The results indicate the

investigated attitudes to be partly genetically transmitted. However, the conclusion reached

is that the dichotomy nurture and nature is false. Attitude formation should rather be seen as

lifelong and complex interaction between genes and environment.
