What Are Nationalism and Globalism?


Published August 24, 2022

What do nationalism and globalism mean? Kiron Skinner looks at the differences between the two and how they manifest in public policy. Skinner also explains why the two policies shouldn’t be seen as opposites. 

Discussion Questions:

  1. Does nationalism reflect a country’s good aspects or negative ones?
  2. Are nationalism and globalism separate phenomena or are they two sides of the same coin?
