Call for Submissions

All those who are interested in nationalism, international laborur market and migration are also welcome to this section as speakers and audiences. We are waiting for those who are interested in the fate of Central Europe and its peoples. We are also looking for those who can present positive experiences about the coexistence of different peoples.


Nationalism and capitalism
The simultaneity of nationalism and capitalism is a known fact. In the XIX. century, both unfolded. But the fact that nationalism is a condition of capitalism is perhaps less well known. Capitalism after feudalism transformed human relations. Taxes previously paid in kind and a high degree of self-sufficiency have been replaced by trade relations measured in money and taxation payable to the state. The use of money presupposes much more accurate communication and language use than before. The easiest language to use is your native language. Members of each nation sought the company of speakers of the same language in both private and business life. Parallel societies and parallel economic life developed among those living in the same area. Parallel societies have survived to this day in the countries of Central Europe. Although, due to assimilation processes and a globalizing economy, segregation is becoming less and less sustainable.
In the XIX. century parallel national worlds are now being replaced by a dual labor market. There is already an international labor market in the world of big cities and multinational companies. Representatives of many nations also work in the offices of a large company. There is no place for nationalism in their globalized world. In the other labor market, in the world of villages, small and medium-sized enterprises, lower incomes, less competitiveness, less mobility often reinforce nationalism.
There are also individual life situations and personal choices behind the often seemingly massive international mobility.
