Sets out basic theory regarding the tension between globalization and the nation‐state, and the emergence of minority nationalism. It describes the manner in which supranational organizations, such as the European Union, have made the benign treatment of minorities a condition of entry for new members, and have provided opportunities for stateless nations to project their identities within a wider political space. It concludes with a discussion of the two hypotheses addressed by the contributors to the volume: first, that the changing international order and transformation of the state are serving to encourage the emergence or re‐emergence of minority nationalisms; second, that they also provide new opportunities for its accommodation or management.
