(p.1) Introduction
Nationalism and Social Policy

The Introduction first situates the study of nationalism in relation to public policy analysis. It then presents the two dimensions of the nationalism–social policy nexus explored through the book. The first is how social policy has been used by nationalist movements as an identity-building tool and how it has become a central focus of nationalist mobilization. The second is how nationalist movements in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Belgium, alongside other social and political forces, have impacted the enactment and implementation of social programmes. Finally, it formulates a detailed outline of the book.
