Trump in a time of globalization : A case-study on the relationship between globalization and the nation-state whitin the frames of Trumps presidentship (English)
Abstract [en]

In times characterized by globalization and development of international politics Donald Trump became the president of the United States of America. No one knew what impact the new nationalistic movements and Trump’s presidentship would have on globalization and the world. The aim with this essay is to analyze the relationship between globalization as a phenomenon and the nation-state within the frames of Trump’s presidentship. The theories used are nationalism by Ernest Gellner which implies that nationalism started to develop during the industrial revolution and a theory by Manfred Steger which explains the different dimensions of globalization. The method used is a qualitative case study and the material that is being analyzed is Trump’s policies during his presidentship (2017-2019). The analyze shows that Trump and his administration wants to change focus from the world to USA and its people. Trump’s policies shows that he strives to revert USA to become a more industrial Society again where nationalism was common and needed to secure the relationship between people and the State. The conclusions shows that Trump views globalization as something affecting the USA and the nation-state in a negative way. It also shows that Trump chooses to deny the main questions of globalization because he wants the nation-state to remain sovereign.
