The conference, organized by the Center for Philosophy of the Institute of Social Science, under the title “Xenophobia, Identity and New Forms of Nationalism”, was held on October 4–5 of 2018. in Belgrade. It was attended by 17 lecturers from eight countries, most of them philosophers, but also sociologists, political scientists, jurists, journalists or fiction writers. This collective volume is its result. Dealing with the phenomenon that we have termed “new nationalism”, strongly colored by xenophobia and framed in identitarian slogans, is an intellectually challenging task. Is new nationalism merely a sequel to the historical one, or something radically different and novel? Nationalism’s most striking feature is perhaps its Protean character, an extraordinary capacity to change and adapt to different political and philosophical standpoints: postmodernism, communitarianism, multiculturalism or even liberalism. By appropriating the arguments of their opponents, by appealing to justice, equality or right to difference, new nationalist narratives and practices blur the distinctions between different theoretical positions and their usual political implications. They provoke distortions and inversions in our ideological maps, and testify to their inadequacy for understanding the issues of contemporary world.
