This chapter constitutes the first part of a detailed discussion on how the model of global justice developed in this book can adequately accommodate nationalism. For many people, individual identity crucially depends on national, cultural, ethnic, or religious identity. Are such affinities and partialities compatible with global justice? Chapter 10 begins by examining nationalism and indicates how the cosmopolitan model of global justice developed in this work can accommodate people's legitimate attachments and allows ample space for them. The focus of this chapter is on the question of what we owe co‐nationals and non‐nationals. This issue is crucial in determining whether liberal nationalist views are ethically defensible. The chapter examines the most developed accounts offered by the leading liberal nationalists (Yael Tamir and David Miller) and shows how those accounts fail. The chapter indicates why the account developed in the book is more promising.

Keywords:   nationalism, national identity, co‐nationals, non‐nationals, liberal nationalism, Tamir, Miller, global justice, cosmopolitan
