It has also become a key idea for business theory and practice, and entered academic debates.
Central Paradox of the Global Era? This does not, however, mean that nationalism is no longer seen as a problem or a force to be reckoned with. It simply became subsumed under a more general heading of identity politics.
It is now common to argue that identity politics is at the core of the predominant majority of post-Cold War conflicts evidenced by the arguably dramatic proliferation of intrastate violence alongside with the decline in interstate hostilities. Nationalism, therefore, falls into the category of those forces that are challenging the stability of the post-Cold War international system and mounting backlash against ideational, normative and material influences of globalization.
The purpose of this chapter is to provide a detailed exposition of the above narrative on the basis of existing literature. It then moves on to the discussion of main arguments describing the relationship between globalization and contemporary nationalism that would amount to and constitute the globalization hypothesis.
In doing so, this chapter addresses the following main questions: What are the causal mechanisms involved in generating nationalist responses to globalization and what do they tell us about the nature of nationalism in the era of globalization? It is common to describe globalization in terms of wide-ranging and often mutually exclusive tendencies.
If the above all encompassing definition is accepted then globalization acquires a statue of universal causal factor, which can mean anything and explain anything.
This kind of definition is generally unhelpful, especially if globalization is to be used as a variable. It is therefore worth identifying what we mean exactly when we talk about globalization.
In this sense, globalization has much to share with notions of integration, interdependence, multilateralism, and openness. At the economic level, globalization manifests itself in the growing economic interdependence and convergence of economic practices.
This includes the spreading of capitalist national economies integrated or seeking integration into the global economy through international trade, flows of capital, foreign direct investments, and multinationals.
It also involves the promotion of neo liberal economic reforms facilitating such integration, as well as increasing deregulation of financial markets. In this context, state actors who promote such reforms domestically and create enabling environments can also be regarded as agents contributing to globalization.
In addition, the spread of international norms and practices with concomitant pressure to comply with them can also be regarded as political aspects of globalization. It can be described as an expansion of the international society and a growing awareness among its members of belonging to a global community.

These countries sought membership in the international society as a first step for their incorporation into global processes and as recognition of their sovereignty and viability.
Some scholars have argued that it is the discourse of globalization and a particular way in which we understand the process that is generating reactions and responses, rather than globalization per se.First, globalization is a set of processes rather than a description of the (fixed) state of a system.
