Ethno-nationalism is nationalism connected to ethnicity. Nationalism can be based on geographical boundaries, or a community. An ethno-nationalism is based on connecting a community to their common origins as one ethnic group, and includes a common language, race, faith and cultural inheritance. Ethnicity combines tribe, occupation, ideology, class and region. An inclination towards tribal supremacy is a classic feature of ethno-nationalism. Twenty-first century nationalisms and ethno-nationalisms are present in many continents. One political movement in the Middle East is Kurdish nationalism, a nation deserving of a sovereign homeland and the largest ethnic stateless group. This could be why though many Kurdish national parties agenda is bringing forth a land of Kurds -Kurdistan -tribal thinking, and internal squabbles are limiting factors. This article explores political aspects of Kurds for autonomy in the twenty-first century.
