The Future of the Nation-State

On Saturday, Iraqis will decide on a new constitution. It’s a test of whether Iraq’s ethnically and religiously divided people truly see themselves as part of a single nation. And as commerce and warfare go global, what does nationhood mean to any of us? Frank Stasio looks at the nation-state with: Sarah Shields, associate professor of history at UNC-Chapel Hill; and Chris Gelpi, associate professor of political science at Duke University. Listener Call-In. (40:00)
