The tension between nationalism and internationalism has been a major feature of world politics since the end of the Cold War.

* changing interpretation of the nation state and nationalism

* technological changes in information, communication and transport

* multiculturalism and citizenship

*ethnicity and religious identity in African, Indian, Bosnian and Polish nationalism

* the growing global significance of Islam.
