Around the world today, nationalism is back—and it’s often deeply troubling. Populist politicians exploit nationalism for authoritarian, chauvinistic,
racist, and xenophobic purposes, reinforcing the
view that it is fundamentally reactionary and antidemocratic.

But Yael (Yuli) Tamir makes a passionate argument for a very
different kind of nationalism—one that revives its
participatory, creative, and egalitarian virtues, answers
many of the problems caused by neo-liberalism and
hyper-globalism, and is essential to democracy at its best.
 

Join WACA for a conversation with Professor Tamir as she explains 
why it is more important than ever for the Left to recognize these
qualities of nationalism, to reclaim it from right-wing extremists, and
to redirect its power to progressive ends.

Professor Yael (Yuli) Tamir is President of Shenkar College and an adjunct professor at the Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University.
