At a time of resurgent minority nationalism in some European regions, many of them clearly leaning towards the left, and when radical right and populist parties are successfully attracting working-class support on the basis of welfare chauvinist proposals that pit natives against immigrants and globalisation in defence of the ‘national welfare state’, the study of the (often-troubled) relationship between the Left and the national issue acquires renewed relevance for both academic and practical purposes. 

Re: Question of the Month: July

This is a particularly difficult question to answer. At first sight it appears that right-wing and populist forms of nationalism have become dominant in many parts of the world, especially among well-established democracies such as the United States, the United Kingdom and India. In addition, the appeal of right-wing nationalism (both conservative and radical) remains strong as recently proved to be the case in the Polish presidential elections and the general election in Spain.
