2018

Identities are always at some level imagined, believes Eurasia Group, arguing that what people choose to focus on differs widely from country to country, according to a 2017 study by Pew Research. A few findings:

  • 52% of Hungarians see place of birth as the most important attribute of national identity, while only 13% of Germans say the same.

  • 84% of Dutch say being able to speak the national language is very important to being truly part of the nation, but only 59% of Italians share this view. 

  • 56% of Poles believe sharing national customs and traditions is central to national identity, while just 26% of Swedes agree.

  • In the US, a large majority (70%) believes speaking English is important to being truly American, but only 45% see culture and tradition as a central national attribute.
