How and when is national identity and nationhood debated, and what does this reveal about the boundaries of national identity? Drawing on analyses of opinion pieces from French and British newspapers, this Policy Brief examines how national identity is debated, contested and challenged in light of national and international news events during the autumn of 2014. This Policy Brief is a publication from the research project ‘Negotiating the nation: Implications of ethnic and religious diversity for national identity’ (NATION).
