The phenomenon of large‐scale immigration presents a challenge to traditional models of the nation‐state, creating minority nationalisms that are typically felt to be inherently antagonistic to immigrants and to the majority nationalism. Is it acceptable for a national minority to impose integration requirements on immigrants that are more stringent than those imposed by the majority culture? Offers a nuanced view of the relationship between immigration and minority nationalism, paying close attention to the normative issues raised by it. This involves examining not only how claims of immigrants and national minorities relate to each other but also how both relate to the underlying principles of liberal democracy, such as individual freedom and social equality. This is a matter of identifying which sorts of accommodations and settlements amongst immigrants and national minorities are most consistent with liberal––democratic norms of justice and freedom and which would be unjust and illiberal. The issue cannot be decided as a matter of principle––it is necessary to look at each case of minority nationalism on its own terms, and examine the nature of its self‐image and aspirations.
