We also learn a great deal how these symbolic boundaries impact destructively on humanitarian action in time of war and genocide. Why do nations matter? Debates over what it means to be English or British assume that such identities are important to people but is this really the case?

And, if so, how are we to understand their significance, notably in an era of mass travel, global media, and international emergencies? In this thought provoking seminar, Michael Skey addressed these issues by examining the views of a group that has been overlooked in much of the recent literature; the ethnic majority. Taking as a starting point debates in Britain, and beyond, over immigration, multiculturalism and community cohesion, he explored how members of the ethnic majority in England discuss their own identity and place their concerns and anxieties, and in particular their relations with other groups.
It is for this reason that perceived challenges to the nation are often so vigorously resisted, notably during times of crisis or transformation. In this event Prof.
Nira Yuval Davis discussed the ways in which it is often not just women and men but women and men of particular intersectional social locations that are constructed in particular roles in nationalist discourses. This seminar considered ways in which debates about immigration and multiculturalism have shifted in Europe in last decade, and the curious role of the rights of women in this. It looks, as one exemplification, at the increasingly restrictive regulations on family reunification, often adopted with the declared aim of reducing the threat of forced marriage, and uses this example to explore issues of gender, culture and nation.
He also distinguished peoples from minority fragments of peoples. Then he showed that, on the basis of a liberal political philosophy, we are able to derive the existence of a right to self-determination for all peoples. Seymour argues that we must, however, allow for a flexible and diversified application of the principle of self-determination.

Depending on the context, we can allow for political representation, self-government, special constitutional status or secession. Finally, Prof. Seymour argued against the idea that peoples have a unilateral right to own a sovereign state even if they do not have a just cause to support their claim.
