The aim of this study is to provide an investigation of an ”old” political phenomenon that over the recent years has enjoyed a considerable revival across Europe. This study about nationalism is mainly based on empirical second hand source material from literature and articles providing us with both a historical as well as a contemporary insight in this ideology.
This study shows us the complexity and the difficulties that the academia is facing regarding nationalism due to the dynamic nature of the ideology, in the sense that it simply means different things to different peoples in different cultures across different points in time. The study is conducted by using a phenomenological, qualitative and inductive method of gathering and interpreting information. A handful of books have formed the foundation through the gathering of relevant empirical information, along with articles from both scientific publications as well as the mainstream media. The data have been studied and laid out to make key points regarding nationalism and the theory behind it clear for the reader. These tomes have been selected primarily due to their relevance and their scientific credibility though comprehensively presented sources and comprehensive content, secondly because of the authors which some of are often quoted in discussions about nationalism.
The case for this study is the Austrian party FPÖ that has been a key player in Austrian as well as European politics. Analyzing this party helps us to understand the new wave of nationalism across Europe that has emerged in the recent years.
