  Ethnic Nationalism, Refugees & Bhutan: Conclusion
It seemed axiomatic to the Bhutanese leadership that the populist ethnic nationalism of the Nepali Bhutanese in the south would in time be mobilized and that such a mobilization would sweep away the more exclusive 'lateral' ethnic nationalism of the Drukpa in the north.
As a result of this concern, the government of Bhutan embarked upon a programme of what Smith calls 'vernacular mobilization' in which the 'genuine membership' of the ethnic nation was to be re-educated in the "true culture, the pristine culture of their ancestors, unsullied by contact with modem civilization" (Smith 1994:192).

  Nationalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nationalism is an ideology which holds that the nation, ethnicity or national identity is a fundamental unit of human social life, and makes certain political claims based on that belief, above all the claim that the nation is the only legitimate basis for the state and that each nation is entitled to its own state.
The nation state is intended to guarantee the existence of a nation, to preserve its distinct identity, and to provide a territory where the national culture and ethos are dominant.
Romantic nationalism (also organic nationalism, identity nationalism) is the form of ethnic nationalism in which the state derives political legitimacy as a natural ("organic") consequence and expression of the nation, or race.

 Ethnicity & Nationalism
Ethnic groups tend to have myths of common origin, and they nearly always have ideologies encouraging endogamy, which may nevertheless be of highly varying practical importance.
Nationalism, being a modern state ideology, is present in the social worlds in which the anthropologists themselves live.
When studying nationalism in a foreign country, it is therefore difficult to use one's own society as an implicit contrast as anthropologists have frequently done when studying "exotic" societies.

 ETHNIC NATIONALISM (I)
That leaders of ethnic minorities should react by using incidents of persecution and injustice, combined with historical glory myths, to mobilize political movements demanding justice with equal opportunity and sovereignty is quite predictable.
Among the assumptions that John Bowen attacks is the notion "that ethnic diversity brings with it political instability and the likelihood of violence." I fully agree with his claim that greater ethnic diversity is not necessarily associated with violence.
All ethnic cleavages could erupt into violence but, if appropriate steps are taken to accommodate the needs and sense of injustice that prevails among ethnic nations, much of this threatening violence can assuredly be prevented.

 Nationalism
The term “nationalism” is generally used to describe two phenomena: (1) the attitude that the members of a nation have when they care about their national identity and (2) the actions that the members of a nation take when seeking to achieve (or sustain) self-determination.
Nations and national identity may be defined in terms of common origin, ethnicity, or cultural ties, and while an individual's membership in the nation is often regarded as involuntary, it is sometimes regarded as voluntary.
Nationalism in a wider sense is any complex of attitudes, claims and directives for action ascribing a fundamental political, moral and cultural value to nation and nationality and deriving special obligations and permissions (for individual members of the nation and for any involved third parties, individual or collective) from this ascribed value.

 ETHNIC NATIONALISM (II)
Although his examples reveal a concern by nation states for their own nationals in other countries, he does not portray the efforts by diasporas to influence the policies of the states in which they live, a dimension that needs to be added to our research agenda.
The rise of ethnic nationalism and terrorism, therefore, is as much the result of the failures of recognized states as it is the result of claims for national unification (involving boundary changes) or for self determination (made possible only by secession from an existing state or by grants of autonomy within that state).
Whether or not nationalism had a "navel," as Smith argues, it surely had a "womb" from which it was born and it created progeny in the form of ethnic nationalisms that now proliferate throughout the world: see Gellner, 1983.

 Belief, Ethnicity, and Nationalism: Religion and Peacemaking: U.S. Institute of Peace
Indeed, it is perhaps correct to suggest that nationalism is best understood as fundamentally ambivalent as between the liberal and the illiberal types, and that the individual "story" of each case of nationalism may best be described as a dynamic response to the countervailing tendencies represented by the two types.
Illiberal forms of nationalism appear, then, to be parasitic upon modern legal-rational organization, and they are required to work out some kind of compromise with those organizational norms, however much their beliefs may contradict the ideals of modern liberalism.
The implication is that, on balance, liberal nationalism contributes to the conditions of peace by cultivating ethnic and religious respect and harmony.

Both indigenous peoples and ethnic nations are "enclaves" inasmuch as they are not separate geographical domains, as are the "external" possessions (colonies) of an empire: rather, they are "internal colonies".

 ETHNIC NATIONALISM - ABSTRACT   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Nationalism, democracy and economic growth were celebrated in the imperial homelands but not in the conquered domains -- that is, until the quest for these precious things led to liberation movements and the emergence of successor states whose boundaries had been created for the administration of imperial possessions.
