The Friendly Face of Nationalism?
Sunday 14th February 2010
This week's Konflikt in English takes a look at the growing wave of nationalism around Europe. Mainstream political parties across the continent are trying to meet the challenges of the far-right with projects to promote national values and identity, as well as contracts for immigrants. Is it a good idea? Find out about Gordon Brown's Britishness, the French government's attempts to form a French identity, and the atmosphere here in Sweden, where "Swedishness" has become both an attraction and a worry for lawmakers and the entertainment industry.
Presenter: Kris Boswell
