How did the idea of nation-building differ between the western and eastern regions of Europe? Elaborate in 5 points with reference to the cases of Britain, France, Poland and Austria-Hungary.


Answer by Student

The idea of nation-building differed between the Western and eastern regions of Europe by:

  • The role of the state in shaping the national identity and culture. In the Western regions, such as Britain and France, the state played an active role in promoting a common language, religion, education and administration among the people. In the eastern regions, such as Poland and Austria-Hungary, the state was often oppressive and repressive, and the people developed their national identity and culture through their own efforts.
