About Nationalism Studies Program
The Nationalism Studies Program was established at Central European University by the late Ernst Gellner with the goal of promoting the study of nationalism in the post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The aim of the program is to engage students in an empirical and theoretical study of issues of nationalism, self-determination, problems of state-formation, ethnic conflict, minority protection and the related theme of globalization. Drawing upon the uniquely supranational milieu of Central European University, it encourages a critical and non-sectarian study of nationalism.
Students are encouraged to engage in an interdisciplinary study of nationalism, a subject that is inherently and fundamentally interdisciplinary. For this reason, the international teaching staff has been assembled to represent a wide range of disciplinary expertise relevant to the study of nationalism including history, social theory, economics, legal studies, sociology, anthropology, international relations and political science. The program offers a wide selection of courses that provide a complex theoretical grounding in problems associated with nationhood and nationalism combined with advanced training in the methodology of applied social science. Additional courses focus on placing problems of nationalism in the context of economic and political transition as well as constitution building in post-1989 Central and Eastern Europe with a comparative outlook on regime transitions outside the region.

Kovács, András Kovács, Anton Pelinka, Will Kymlicka, Shlomo Avineri, Rogers Brubaker, Donald Horowitz, Michael Stewart, Walter Kemp, Selim Deringil, Rainer Bauböck, Tibor Várady, Victor Karády, Michael Miller, Júlia Szalai and Florian Bieber.
