Will Nationalism Drive Conflict in Asia?
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Peace and Conflict Research. Peace Research Institute Oslo. (East Asian Peace)
2016 (English)In: Nations and Nationalism, ISSN 1354-5078, E-ISSN 1469-8129, Vol. 22, no 2, 232-242 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article is part of a discussion of  why nationalism is surging in the world today, instead of  having run its course. It discusses this question in an Asian context with main focus on state nationalism in China, Japan and Taiwan, and on sub-state nationalism in Myanmar.  The article argues that the new nationalism is dangerous and could, in conjunction with other factors, lead to open conflict in a region that has long enjoyed relative peace.
