Re: The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series: “The revival of regional homelands and the perils of competitive solidarities” by Maurizio Ferrera

I read with great interest Professor Ferrera’s post, finding it exciting and inspiring. Here, I would like to question only one aspect of his interpretation of the ‘revival of regional homelands’. What he is really looking at in this piece is the ‘protest of rich regions’ in Europe (notably examples such as Catalonia, Flanders and Northern Italy). Now, my question is: is the process of opening up of national borders (both in terms of European integration and wider globalisation) so important in this context?

The Catalan blowback. 

I read Maurizio Ferrera’s article largely as a response to, and interpretation of, the global ghosts and fears evoked by the Catalan crisis. Moreover, the author perceives similarities between Italy's Northern leagues and the Catalan pro-independence parties; this vision seems to inform much of his interpretive framework.

Thank you for a highly illuminating contribution. Could I raise a few questions that may be of interest?

Re: The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series: "Left and Right around (and within) Nationalism" by Liah Greenfeld

Thanks to Daniele for continuing the conversation and beginning with important points on which we are in agreement. Regarding the Bolshevik Revolution, whose 100-year anniversary we passed last month, its nationalist character is nowhere revealed more clearly than in Lenin’s own writings, particularly his essay “What Is To Be Done?” Russia’s socialism had not changed the character of Russian nationalism, and it still remains the same today, after Socialism no longer figures in Russia’s official name. I would guess that the same applies to nationalisms of Poland and Hungary.
