The Rise of Nationalism in the World

Nationalism is defined as a system inclusive of the political, social, cultural, and economic spheres of a society, which promotes national interests over individual or communal welfares. It is used to denote that an individual’s loyalties are not directed towards the King or the ruler but towards the nation and its people. That is to say, the feelings of devotion for the nation-state go beyond individuals or groups. A region becomes a nation-state when it comprises of its own autonomous government.
