As Technology Evolves, So Does the Nature of Nationalism (Marie Lamensch, CIGI)

Globalization, supranational institutions, regional economies, climate change, international jihad, migration and the current pandemic; despite expectations, these transnational phenomena have not weakened the notion of nations and nationalism.

On the contrary, there is an increasing trend to deglobalization in a drive to reaffirm state sovereignty. Xenophobic discourses have grown during the COVID-19 pandemic and, previously, following large-scale terrorist attacks in the West. We do not live in a world without borders or attachment to nations.
