Post-National Patriotism and the Feasibility of Post-National Community in United Germany

Synopsis

With a focus on united Germany and the post-1989 German unification process, Phillips outlines the necessity and feasibility of a concept of post-national patriotism. Specifying the example of racist violence, he argues that a substantial measure of Germany's social consensus can only be extended to heterogeneous Europe if there is a greater recognition of heterogeneous Germany, not only by Germans but by non-Germans as well. He shows that the consensual structures of German-based transnational businesses may play a leading role in the development of a sense of post-national patriotism. He argues that state solutions to issues of immigration and integration are not in themselves adequate and that these may be supplemented by private-sector institutions taking on responsibility.
