Nationalism, Regional Tensions and Migration

Open Panel

This panel brings together scholars at different stages of their academic career and from different regions who share their interest in nationalism and security in divided nations and regions, as well as an interest in interaction among the groups involved in such processes. Infante and Voyvodic look at security issues in states and provinces that are divided within their borders, Columbia and Northern Ireland, whereas Lhaskyabs focuses on the effects of nationalism and division on Ladakh. Kim’s work is related to the effect of migration, in particular, by refugees, leavning areas of civil war and unrest, often based on nationalism. Kim focuses on the role of social networks among the people on the move, which Ko connects this issue with the rise of nationalism in Germany, in particular after the 'great migration wave' of 2015.
