AOPSSS #35 “Nationalism and Shared Democratic Identity”

In the thirty-fifth AOPSSS session, Jiyoung Ko (Bates) presented a paper showing that citizens’ tendency to favor hawkish foreign policy upon stimulation of nationalistic sentiments vanishes when they are reminded that another country involved in a dispute is a democracy like their own country. Edward Hearn (Doshisha) and Paul McCartney (Towson) provided detailed comments on a range of issues and public attendees chimed in with many valuable comments.
