National Identity in Motion

Third Annual WZB Conference on Migration and Diversity
Dr. Maike M. Burda
mail: nationalidentity [at] wzb [dot] eu
fon: +49 30 030-25491-450

The conference aims to discuss national identity at different levels, for example how individuals of immigrant and non-immigrant background negotiate and express national identity (e.g., in implicit and explicit attitudes or behaviors), how national identity is reproduced by public institutions such as schools, how states define national identity through their constitutions and laws or what measures and policies governments take to foster certain forms of national identity.
Through taking a closer look at these phenomena we want to understand if and how national identity content changes and is negotiated within and between individuals or institutions and if and why the concept still matters.
