This book shows, however, that the issue of ethno-nationalism is much broader than its depiction in the media. It demonstrates how ethno-nationalism is not simply the recourse of minorities seeking separation from existing states, but that it can also be associated with dominant and majority groups.
The contributors explore this complex phenomenon through a series of case studies and analyse its wide geographical spread from India to Bolivia and from Russia to Spain. Different angles on the Irish case are presented, and a comparative analysis underscoring the options available for accommodating ethno-nationalist parties and movements is also included. The volume is multidisciplinary and the authors employ a variety of methodologies, including the innovative use of visual representation, to advance our understanding of the nature of ethno-nationalism.

The scale of the killing and human displacement and destruction was so huge that President Obasanjo, described it the worst he had seen since the Nigerian civil war. The challenge of the African churches is how to appeal to the Christian values to inform and transform social relationships. This paper suggests that normative concepts, central to the argumentations that hold common basic beliefs and discourse together, can allow us to tap into the language of legitimation. In search for long-term solutions to ethno-political competition and discrimination the exploration showed that ill-founded methodologies tend to substitute equal citizenship among citizens in favor of the model of exclusion founded upon ethnocentrism. Certificate History of Nigeria.
Through a vast diachronic corpus and pertinent datasets, this paper nevertheless reveals a puzzling decline in the public discourse on, and practice of, self-determination over the last fifty years. Self-determination, however, has not been eliminated, and taming it may yet prove a Pyrrhic victory. Mirage or Vision: Binationalism in Theory and Practice. Ethnopolitics, 15 4 : What is binationalism, what sets it apart, and can it help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
This paper crystallizes the concept of binationalism and shows how it challenges prevalent principles and practices. I distinguish binationalism from dual citizenship and civic-ethnic amalgams, and analyze its normative narrative. This model defies the exclusivity of the nation-state model.
I discuss the meaning of such potential transformation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the extent to which binationalism can aid its resolution. I conclude that binationalism has largely been a mirage but may become a vision for a future, with ramifications for, and beyond, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Ethno-nationalism presents a multitude of challenges to the structure of the international political system and to the internal governance of states. This volume. This was a review of the book, 'the challenges of Ethno-Nationalism: Case Studies in Identity Politics, a collection of contributions by various authors but edited.
British Journal of Sociology 67 2 : The study of political legitimacy is divided between prescriptive and descriptive approaches. Political philosophy regards legitimacy as principled justification, sociology regards legitimacy as public support. However, all people can, and occasionally do engage in morally reasoning their political life. This paper thus submits that in studying socio-political legitimation—the legitimacy-making process—the philosophical ought and the sociological is can be bridged.
Nations and Nationalism 21 4 : — When and what is the nation, and nationalism, and when have both emerged in the Arab world? I suggest new ways of approaching these questions, and new answers. In that sense, positive nationalism is the revolution of the Arab Spring, challenging both authorities and polities.
Self-determination, a prime justificatory principle of the international society, has become a confused, and confusing, compass. At the heart of this confusion, I argue, lies the tacit submersion of self-determination in state-determination. Abulof, Uriel with Wolfgang Danspeckgruber Our world today is fraught with confusion about the principles and practices of politics—lacking both a moral common ground and a coherent grand strategy to meet the challenges of our time.
Self-determination has been then, as now, an integral part of the story, though often hidden in plain sight. From its inception, self-determination has never been consensual, quickly becoming a double-edged principle. Abulof, Uriel and Ogen Goldman International Journal of Conflict and Violence 9 5. We show that a MENA democracy makes a country more prone to both the onset and incidence of civil war, even if democracy is controlled for, and that the more democratic a MENA state is, the more likely it is to experience violent intrastate strife.
Interestingly, anocracies do not seem to be predisposed to civil war, either worldwide or in MENA. We also advise complementing current research on intrastate and interstate clashes with the study of intercommunal conflicts and the democratic features of non-state polities. The Malpractice of Rationality in International Relations.
Rationality and Society 27 3 : — The concept of rationality is ubiquitous; scholars, pundits, and practitioners turn to it, sometimes unwittingly, to describe, explain, and predict. International Journal of Social Research Methodology 18 1 How should we study the language of political legitimation? Incipient scholarship increasingly seeks to bridge the conceptual schism between the sociological is and the philosophical ought in the study of legitimacy, looking at public legitimating discourses to uncover the actual social attitudes toward prescriptive principles. And while this research agenda has recently gained traction, its methodology remains opaque.
This paper suggests that normative concepts, central to the argumentations that hold common basic beliefs and discourse together, can allow us to tap into the language of legitimation. Normative concepts can be traced via mixed methods research, incorporating the quantitative method of corpus linguistics and the qualitative method of discourse-tracing — two techniques that mutually enrich and complement each other.
By illuminating changes in the sort, scale, and scope of normative concepts, this mode of inquiry can explicate the language of legitimation and advance our understanding of sociopolitical legitimacy. International Political Sociology 8 4 Empirically, if some securitizations are deeper than others, Israel's is one of the deepest. In this study, I examine this exceptionally apt, though little-examined, case for securitization theory.
The article analyzes the securitization of demography and its linkage to geography and democracy in the Israeli-Jewish discourse and praxis. Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion 53 3 : Why and how do nations turn to religion to justify claims for statehood? This article addresses this question in both theory and practice, showing that religion plays multiple legitimating roles that shift dynamically according to the success they yield for national movements.
Empirically, I analyze the roles of religion in Zionist efforts to legitimate a Jewish state in Palestine. I argue that Zionism has responded to persistent delegitimation by expanding the role of religion in its political legitimation.
International Politics. How should we assess the theoretical validity and practical viability of these accounts?
Ethnic and Racial Studies 37 14 Ethnic conflicts often involve a delegitimation of the rival ethnic community and its national aspirations. This, I suggest, can impel the community in question to legitimate its politics through ethical principles, which in turn may affect its policies. An abiding non-recognition of the ethnonational movement from within and without may engender ethical transformation and policy reorientation.
The original concept comprised the horizon of Arab recognition and peace, the strategy of containment, and the moral pillars of reciprocal self-determination and the lesser injustice.
