Moderate nationalism

Moderate nationalism is a moderate version of nationalism.


Subtypes include civic nationalism (liberal nationalism). Moderate nationalism is similar to patriotism, except that moderate nationalism is focused on cultural and ethnic issues, while patriotism puts more value on forming a civic community and loyalty to the state.[1]


Moderate nationalism had a role in Irish nationalism[2] and Indian nationalism.[3]

South Korea's liberal movements are considered moderate nationalists given their support for immigrant rights and foreign voting rights.[4]

Some American opinion articles[by whom?] called for the adoption of moderate nationalism by the society of the United States in the 2010s.[5][6]
